Repeal Association of the Friends of Ireland, 1842

On 10 May 1842 in St. Louis, the Missouri Republican reported a meeting of the Repeal Association of the Friends of Ireland. A list of those attending included 172 names, with the majority Irish born. The list includes the name and the county, and sometimes city, of birth in Ireland.

In 1978, St. Louis Genealogical Society volunteers compared this list with four resources:

1850 Census of St. Louis — C
St. Louis Marriage Index — M
1840–41 City Directory — D
Privately owned index to early newspaper records

Many names of the attendees were located in some of the four sources listed above; others, however, were not. A few non-Irish friends attended the meeting, and they are noted as well.

This list was published in the 1978 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 11, number 2, pages 33-38.
