Baptismal records usually provide the name of the child, the parents, date of birth and baptism, and sponsors or godparents. In this period, the baptismal record is probably the only written record of this person’s birth.

Virginia Guinther transcribed this data from records at Concordia Seminary and contributed this information for publication in the 1983 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 16, number 1, pages 13–16.
