This source comprises two volumes of the 1840 Missouri state census of St. Louis County. The first volume contains the census of the townships of Carondelet, Bonhomme, Meramec, St. Ferdinand, and Central; the second volume contains the census of the City of St. Louis and St. Louis Township. This is not the federal census, but rather a census conducted by the state of Missouri. This census includes only the names of the head of the household. Entries usually include name of the head of the family; numbers of white males and females in different age ranges in the household; and numbers of "colored" slave and free males and females in different age ranges in the household. This census also includes some business and institutional names.
