1860 Voter Reg. St. Louis area - Lookup

Surnames: McLaughlin, Scranton
Hello,
I was hoping to find someone who had access to the 1860 Voter Reg. indexes or cards. In San Francisco these were a huge help in putting my family back together.

I'm trying to find my gggf and his little family. In the 1860 Census I think they are living in St. Louis (Indep. City) he is working as a Carpenter he also had been a labor and piano forter. I'm trying to find an actual street they lived on so I can narrow down the churches, as at the time there where many in the small area.

His name:
John L. McLaughlin (he may have not used the L. at that time period)
Born: 1831 approx. Ireland
Wife: Elizabeth Scranton
Came to the states in 1834 approx.
May have just come from Boston, MA

Any help getting into a Voter list in St. Louis would be great.
(they were there from 1858-1865 approx.)

Thank you,
Cathie

I am not aware of where to find voter lists for St. Louis during this time period. As an alternative, let me suggest city directories which are available here on ancestry.com.

I have had some luck finding relatives in St Louis using these records, although they are not well indexed (you have to scroll through a lot of pages looking for the person you want).

It looks like ancestry has a partial directory for 1863 and a pretty complete one for 1864. That may help you find what you need.

Good luck!

Hi,

The St. Louis Genealogical Society, www.stlgs.org/ might have the voter registrations.
