St Peter's Book I contains four places where members are listed in alphabetical or semi-alphabetical order:

1......At the beginning on pages 9-13 following the church constitution is a list of 143 members (Verziechniss der Gemeinde Geleiter) who signed the constitution between the founding of the church in 1865 and 1873. The first 68 are in alphabetical order, and thus are presumed to be the original charter members. The remaining names are not alphabetical and are presumed to be for new members who joined later.

This list is of special interest to the family historian because of the signatures given. Some are written using the English script, others use the old style German script, and some simply use the illiterate XXX. Many names are crossed out as was the custom on the death of a member. With others "Todt" (Dead) is written next to the name. It is also interesting that the phonetic spellings of the names written by the Pastor sometimes differ from those in the signatures, which may be of some help in carrying searches back to church records in Germany.

2......On pages 23 and 24 there is an alphabetical list of members dated 6 February 1873 with no signatures. All are written in the same hand, presumably that of the pastor.

3......From pages 265-329 at the end of Book I there is a mostly alphabetical family summary for most of the original charter members. This list has already been published in the March 1988 Volume 9, No. 4 issue of the Champaign County Genealogical Society Quarterly on pages 115-123. Besides the information contained in the Quarterly article, lists of names of children with their birth dates and birth places are also often given. Furthermore, the names of elderly parents who immigrated with the family are sometimes mentioned.

4......At the end of Book I on pages 364-375 there is an alphabetical "Register" of names which provides an incomplete index to the Family Summaries on pages 265-329 and to some early baptisms, marriages or deaths for the member.

The list which follows gives an alphabetical summary of all of the names contained in the four lists of members given in St. Peter's Book I.
