St. John Lutheran Church is located in Ellisville, in St. Louis County. These records contain the name of the child, father and mother, plus the birth and baptismal dates. In many cases, the mother’s maiden name is included.

The church’s baptismal records are complete starting in 1856; however, some years are in German script. Further transcription is required for the missing years. The microfilm records are available at Concordia Seminary and the History and Genealogy department at St. Louis County Library headquarters.

St. Louis Genealogical Society volunteer and former president, Carolyn Jolly Pratt, transcribed the 1854–1874 data that was published in the 1982 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 15, number 1, pages 7–10.
