Long Lost Marriage Records of Justice Fr. Flach, 1857–1858

Between July 1857 and March 1858, a St. Louis Justice of the Peace performed forty-three marriage ceremonies. They were recorded in his small book, including the signature of the witnesses. However, only two of the marriages were recorded at the Recorder of Deeds office.

Frederick Flach died shortly after the last entry dated 6 March 1858. In 1850, he lived in Ward 6 with Catherine, probably his wife, and five children. Frederick worked as a clerk, and was born about 1800 in Germany. The 1857 City Directory listed Frederick as a Justice of the Peace in the 2nd Ward with an office at 17 Carondelet, residing on Fulton. His daughter, Ida Flach, married Gustav Orth in 1865. This family preserved the records over time.

Ella S. Michael, a historical researcher, discovered the book at the Sequim-Dungeness Museum in Sequim, Washington. The book was too faded to photograph so Ms. Michael copied the records by hand.

Maryhelen Wilson provided this information first published in the 1989 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 22, number 3, pages 65–68.
