Louis Bach Grave, Bellefontaine Cemetery

North of his old friend and business partner, Adam Lemp’s grave, there is the family plot of Louis Bach, who also was active in politics and city government in pre-Civil War St. Louis.

As my new research will show next summer, Louis Bach and John Kaeckell were active partners with Adam Lemp in the famous brewery back in the 1840s back when the then-named Western Brewery was still located down on the Levee on Second Street.

Both Kaeckell and Bach remained friends with Lemp, as Bach would serve as executor of his estate, and Kaeckell’s family and descendants would be allowed to be buried in the famous brewer’s burial plot.
