This branch of the Austrian Hesch family is descended from Johann Hesch and his wife Marya (Schlinz) Hesch, who came to America from Oberschlagles, Bohemia with three sons: Paul, Mathias, and Anton. +++Johann & Marya settled in Buffalo County, Wisconsin but moved to Pierz, Mn in about 1885. .+++Mathias settled in Waumandee, Wisconsin and moved to Pierz in 1911. +++Anton never married but farmed with his dad in Agram Township, where he died in 1911.+++And Paul, my great grandfather, settled five miles away, in Buckman, Minnesota. He died there in 1900.

More about the Mischkes

Wow, it's so cool that once in awhile, I'll hear from people who're related to Buckman folks (so possibly related to Heschs one way or another 😊).  Case in point: here's a clarification of a photo we published back in January, 2012, about the John & Theresa (Peschel) Mischke family.  Neat, huh?

Top row – Leo, Hermina, Ida, Carl, Agnes, Mary, Jack. Bottom row – Joseph, Benno, John, Fridolin, Theresa, Hildegarde. John and Theresa (Peschel) Mischke lived on a farm in Buckman, MN. Theresa liked to garden, and let her grandkids eat the tomatoes right off the vine. Hermina became a nun, and changed her name to Sr. Hildine Mischke, OSB. She was a cook in the convent. Mary also became a nun, Sr. Marian Mischke, OSB, and taught first grade for many years in Richfield, MN. Jack opened a Gambles store in Richmond, MN. Fr. Benno was provincial of the order for 12 years, and started a Crosier mission in New Guinea. He was also a photographer. Fr. Fritz (Fridolin) was a parish priest in parishes around Onamia, MN. Ida married Joseph Maier, and lived on a farm in Buckman, raising 6 kids. Her youngest, Gloria, was born when Ida was 45 years old and Gloria’s youngest sibling was 12 years old. It was a surprise for the whole family, as Ida didn’t let anyone know she was pregnant. Joseph had a farm and was an accountant. Agnes married Joseph Gall and lived on a farm. Hildegarde married Felix Kujawa, and lived in Buckman. The couple owned and operated Minneapolis Moline, a machinery shop that later sold the first RCA televisions.

Hooray and many thanks to Darla Hamann (daughter of the above mentioned Gloria)
