Peter Bach, the oldest of five children, two of whom died as infants, was born in Diefflen, Saarlouis, Saarland, Germany, on March 10th 1854 to Jacob Bach and Barbara (Lauer) Bach. He along with his younger brother, Paul Bach, my great grandfather, left Germany to come to Minnesota in October of 1883, by way of Antwerp, Belgium. As best as I can determine, they first settled in the Slayton, Minnesota area. Their mother died on Jan 30th 1863, while still in Germany. On July 2nd, 1864, Jacob married Anna Yost (Jost), eventually giving Peter seven half siblings. In April of 1884, Jacob and the rest of the family, except John, moved to America, settling in the Avoca, Minnesota area. By 1890, Peter and Paul had moved to Epiphany, South Dakota, where it seems, many others from their part of Germany had settled. In August of 1905, Peter, along with his brother Paul and Paul's new family, moved to Stearns County Minnesota and lived the rest of his life in the area. He never did marry. He died of pneumonia at the St. Joseph's Home for the Aged in Saint Cloud at 3 a.m. according to his death certificate.
