  • 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.

  • HERMAN RETZLOFF, a prosperous and progressive citizen of Excelsior
    Township, is the owner of a finely improved farm of 180 acres. In addition
    to his agricultural pursuits he conducts an extensive business in the
    sale of farm implements. He is a native of Germany, where his birth
    occurred December 11, 1866. His parents, Charles and Eva (Preskorn)
    Retzloff, were born, reared and married in Germany and they immigrated
    to the United States in 1873, settling in Pennsylvania, whence they
    removed to Sauk County, Wisconsin, in 1879. The father was a farmer
    and initiated his work in this line in Sauk County on an estate of sixtyfive
    acres, which he cleared and improved with modern buildings. He
    continued to reside here until his death in 1911, aged eighty-six years.
    His wife passed to eternal rest in 1906, at the age of seventy-two years.
    To them were born ten children, three of whom died in infancy and the
    remainder of whom are all living in 1917. Following are their names in respective order of birth: Mary, Augusta, Godfried, John, Herman,
    Ernest and Bertha. Mr. Retzloff was a republican, and he was a devout
    Lutheran in religious faith. He was a man of sterling integrity of
    character, was an efficient farmer and he gave his staunch support to all
    matters forwarded for public improvements.
    At the age of seven years Herman Retzloff accompanied his parents
    to America. and his early educational training was obtained in the public
    schools of Pennsylvania, where he lived until his thirteenth year. He
    then came to Sauk County, here completed his schooling and eventually
    turned his attention to the great basic industry of agriculture, with
    which line of enterprise he has since been identified. He owns the old
    parental homestead and has added to its acreage until he now has an
    estate of 180 acres. In addition to general farming and stock raising he
    has. a large patronage and does an extensive business in the sale of agricultural
    implements of all kinds. He is an enterprising business man
    and a loyal and public-spirited citizen.
    In 1893 Mr. Retzloff married Miss Anna Liebberger, who was born
    and reared in Germany, where her father died in 1900 and where her
    mother still maintains her home. Mir. and Mrs. Retzloff have four children:
    Rienhold, Hilda, Bruno and Esther, all of whom are at the
    parental home.
