     Circa 1918 WILLIAM GIESE has played the part of a pioneer in Sauk County and
is a member of a family which for more than half a century have made their efforts productive not only for the benefit of themselves but for the welfare of the community. William Giese was born in Pomerania, Germany, January 17, 1849, a son of Michael and Elenore Giese. In November, 1864, the family came to America and settled in Honey Creek Township of Sauk County. They acquired 220 acres, a part of which was cleared and improved. In a few years it was all brought under cultivation and became one of the farms of note in that part of the county. Michael Giese died at Watertown, South Dakota, in 1894 and was buried at Watertown, and his wife passed away in 1871 and was buried in Honey Creek Township. All their children except the youngest were born in Germany, their names being Lottie, John, William, August, Amelia, Julius, Bertha and Annie. William Giese grew up on his father's place in Sauk County. He
married Miss Minnie Priebe January 11, 1871. She was a daughter of
William Priebe and Minnie Priebe, and they also came from Germany.
He made his home in Chicago for six years and in 1876 came to Sauk County on a farm and had to grub out a place to put up a house for his family. There he made his home until the death of Mrs. William Giese, who died June 4, 1904, leaving seven children: Anna, William, John, Henry, Albert, George and Marie. Anna married William Harty; William married Amelia Kohlmeyer; Henry married Mary Luck; Albert married Clara Petske; and Marie married Jason Tuthill. William Giese is making his home with his son, John.
