Johann Gottfried Gieck
Birth: 1810
Bavaria (Bayern), Germany
Death: Oct. 10, 1859
Osage County
Missouri, USA

The following information is from the page 693, section The Methodist Episcopal Church, chapter on History of Osage County, in the book History of Cole, Moniteau, Morgan, Benton, Miller, Maries, and Osage Counties, Missouri:
In 1856 several German families (Runge, Schultz, Kuhagen, Gens and Kasming) located on Indian Creek, and two years later Charles and Godfrey (Carl and Gottfried) Giecke, who had letters from a German Methodist Church at Cincinnati, Ohio. The latter two succeeded in organizing a church, and Rev. Hoech, of Hermann, was secured as a preacher; also Godfrey was made a preacher, and held services at his home. The first church was built in 1859, but in 1879 a stone church, valued at $1,500, was erected and dedicated by Rev. M. Dewein (P.E.). The circuit including Bland and Indian Creek has 137 members, 67 of whom are at Indian Creek, under Rev. H. Miller.
