Joseph Marconnot, a bachelor truck farmer from an old French family in Carondelet. Marconnot died on December 27, 1924, and, following the instructions of his will, he was embalmed like King Tut, dressed in a tuxedo, and laid to rest in a granite mausoleum with a plate glass door, so that all the world could come and view him dressed in his finest. He was a popular attraction, until the Archdiocese, worried that vandals would break the window, asked Marconnot's heirs to replace the plate glass window with a stainless steel door.
