TOMB DESCRIPTION AND CONDITION The Schwegmann Family Tomb is located in plot numbers 8 and 9 in Square C on St. Bonifice Walk of St. Roch Cemetery No. 1. The Schwegmann Family Tomb is a pediment tomb constructed of Dorian Gray granite by the Albert Weiblen Marble and Granite Company. The tomb is in fine shape and is under perpetual care provided by the Archdiocese of New Orleans. The Schwegmann Tomb is the burial place of seven members of the family: patriarch Garret Schwegmann; his wife Mary Henke; four of their five children George August, John William, Mary, and Theresa; and George Augusts wife Annie Emmer. FAMILY HISTORY This Schwegmann family can be traced back to John Gerhrd (Garret/ George/Gerald) Schwegmanns arrival in New Orleans on October 29, 1860 from Germany. Garret Schwegmann served in the Union Army and was honorably disharged after being wounded in combat. Garret opened his own counter service grocery store in 1869 after apprenticing at a German owned store. He moved to various locations and finally settled at 901 Piety Street at the corner of Burgundy Street. Son George August bought the business from his father in 1895 and was later joined by brother John W. George August married Annie Emmer and had a family of two children. Theresa Schwegmann was married twice, to Charles Henry Uter and to G. A. Newald. Mary Schwegmann never married. John William married Marie Frey and had a family of six children: John G., Anthony Joseph, Paul G., Odilea Marie, Francis August, and Marguerite. Marie Frey is entombed in the Frey Family Tomb near the Schwegmann Family Tomb. In 1939, John W. rented the business from George, Sr. when he became ill. Later that year John W. revolutionized grocery shopping in New Orleans by making the store self-service. In 1946, John Williams sons, John G., Anthony, and Paul, opened the first Schwegmann Brothers Giant Super Market at the corner of Elysian Fields and St. Claude Avenues. Under John G., the Schwegmann operation grew to eighteen stores including the worlds largest super market at the time in 1957. Schwegmann stores revolutionized the way people shopped, with innovations such as in-store banks, cocktail lounges, and gas pumps in the parking lot. In addition to these, John G. led the fight for trade rights such as opposing a law requiring a minimum mark up on alcohol and opposing milk price-fixing. Schwegmann stores were a fixture of New Orleans until 1997.

SCHWEGMANN FAMILY TOMB

TOMB HISTORYSt. Roch Cemetery No. 1 is located at 1725 St. Roch Avenue in the New Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. The cemetery was started by Father Peter Leonard Thevis when his largely German Catholic congregation at Holy Trinity Church was spared from the yellow fever epidemic after having prayed for intervention from St. Roch. Father Thevis designed the cemetery after Campo Santo dei Tedeschi in Rome and the cemetery opened in 1874. He also designed a chapel as a shrine to St. Roch and constructed it with the help of his congregation. A second part of the cemetery opened in 1895.
