After the separation of St. Louis City and County in 1876, the new county seat was established in Clayton. County residents recorded their life and death events at the new courthouse starting in 1877. This index covers the St. Louis County Will Book I (1876–1889), which was given to St. Louis Genealogical Society by Mrs. Joseph J. Jannuzzo.

The index provides the name of the deceased and the page number of the will. The wills are on file in the Probate Office at the Clayton Government Center, and a copy is available in the History & Genealogy Department at St. Louis County Library Headquarters.

Mrs. Joseph J. Jannuzzo contributed this information for publication in the 1975 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 8, number 1, pages 13–14.
