1776 St. Louis Census
Robert Parkin reconstructed a 1776 census of the twelve-year-old village of St. Louis at the time of the bicentennial. The reconstructed census indicates 1,297 men, women, and children were living in St. Louis. There were also 115 in the Catholic Church graveyard.
Records such as the Catholic Church register, militia rolls of 1780, and Spanish Archives, including Livres Terrien (land books) and civil marriage contracts, were used in compiling the file of original settlers as well as the 1776 census of St. Louis.
Robert Parkin contributed this index for publication in the 1986 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 9, number 1, pages 13–20.
