Early Kaskaskia Church Records
Section Three: De Beaubois’ Baptism Records 1720-1721
This is apparently a register begun by De Beaubois in July of 1720. This section is written on similar margined paper as the proceeding. Section Three, however, contains some of the few first-generation registers predating 1722. This is indicated by witness signatures (in varying hands) along with occasional in-line or marginal corrections indicative of a working document. It also includes some older records (some signed by Boullenger) that De Beaubois copied into his register from loose-leaf papers. The entries span the period July 1720 through late 1721.
