St. Peter Catholic Baptisms, 1838-1851

Formed in 1838, St. Peter’s Catholic Church was established in the “Gravois Settlement” of St. Louis County. The baptismal album has been preserved and is in most cases very legible. Since this record was transcribed, the Archdiocese’s records have been microfilmed and are available at St. Louis County Library Special Collections and the Family History Library.

This record was transcribed before 1978 by StLGS volunteers with cooperation from Mrs. Ernst Stadler, acting director, and Mrs. Kathleen Schoene, librarian, of Missouri Historical Society, and Monsignor Edward J. O’Donnell of St. Peter’s.

This information was printed in the 1978 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 11, number 2, pages 79–83.

Showing records 1 to 86 of 86.
