After the separation of St. Louis City and St. Louis County in 1876, a new government was established in Clayton. This is a list of the first marriages recorded in the new government center.

Copies of the original records are available at the St. Louis County Government Center or on microfilm at St. Louis County Library Special Collections.

Robert Parkin and Dorothy A. Griffith, founders of St. Louis Genealogical Society, originally prepared and donated this list for publication as a series in the 1979 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 12, number 1, pages 17–20; number 2, pages 69–72; number 4, pages 152–153.

Special Collections Department of St. Louis County Library provided a subset of late-filed St. Louis County Marriages from their microfilm SLCOM-2, FHL 1405559, item 4, in the 2004 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 37, number 3, pages 106-109.

Discrepancies in the lists were checked and resolved by Mary Ryan in 2007.
