To avoid the draft in Germany, Richard Giesonn immigrated with his parents in 1890 to the U.S., where the family name changed to Gieson.

In 1891, Richard married Elizabeth Jeude (or Yeide). They had 7 children and divorced in 1909.

He enlisted on July 9, 1898, and served during the Spanish-American War with Company G. 6th Missouri Volunteer Infantry, and was honorably discharged on May 10, 1899, at Savannah, GA. He suffered from Rheumatism.

Richard always pronounced his name as "Rickard".
