There is a branch of the Resseguie
family that changed the spelling
of the name to Ressegieu. Edwin J.
Ressegieu was born in Cincinnatus
NY in 1849. He moved to Sioux City
Iowa and married there. He was a
wholesale merchant there. I found
a victorian scrap book on Ebay which
had this trade card pasted in it. I don't
think that the rooster was original to
the card. The book once belonged to an
Effie May Rodden.
