About

St. Paul Catholic Church Baptismal Ledger 1854-1909
St. Paul Catholic Church is one of the oldest existing churches in Lexington. The records for the parish go back to 1854. The ledgers are part of the church's historical archive, and contain unique records for Lexington's history. Bishop Stowe, the bishop of the Lexington diocese, has given permission for ledger records 100+ years old to be made public. The baptismal ledger contains the date of baptism, name of the child, parent names, date of birth, sponsor names, and the name of the priest who performed the baptism. Each record spans two pages. There are also some Confirmation records located at the beginning of the earliest ledger. African American baptisms before 1875 are entered in the general list. African American baptisms after 1875 begin on image 163.
