CHRISTOF AND TERESA BIRNBAUM Christof Birnbaum, his wife Teresa; children Henry, Crescence (Crescentia),Dionysius (Tony), and Johanna, left their native Bavaria in early May 1883, sailing on the "Bohemia" to New York. The family traveled by train to Fort Pierre, Dakota Territory. Here the railroad ended and the rest of the journey be wagon train was difficult. Traveling with the Mike Teal family, they found the Cheyenne River dangerous to cros because of high waters and heavy spring rains. On the road from Fort Pierre, Baby Johanna died and was buried by the roadside. The family arrived in Rapid City, South Dakota on June 24, 1883. Christof Birnbaum homesteaded on Dry Creek and later bought land on Rapid Creek. While living here two sons were born, Joseph and Fred. Fred died in February 1914 of pneumonia.
