The descendants of Basil Giard, one of the area’s first white settlers, last week visited the community named for their ancestor. The stop in Giard, at the historic Methodist Church, was one of several the family made in northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin as they traced Giard history. Visitors included (left to right) Jennifer Stone Grimes, Alison Stone and Pamela Stone Becke and their families. Their late mother, Andrea Giard Stone, was the last Giard.

Several Giard residents shared history about the community, its historic church and well-known Fourth of July celebrations with the Giard descendants on May 27.
