Excerpt from The Resseguie Family: A Historical and Genealogical Record of Alexander Resseguie of Norwalk, Conn;, And Four Generations of His Descendants

In view of the fact that the advent of the Resseguie family in America occurred nearly a century after the earliest settlements had been made, and at a period when the eastern coast had become comparatively well populated, and when town and church organizations had long been completed, it appears somewhat remarkable that no more of a historical nature can be learned concerning them than at present seems possible. The early family was composed of a sturdy, middle-class people, descendants of the Huguenots and Puritans, in whom, especially in the first two or three generations, the pioneer instinct seems to have been remarkably prominent. The manifest desire to make a way for themselves, a distaste for clannish village civilization, and a deep enjoyment of the life of nature to be met with in the forest clearing, urged them instinctively to pusrr further and further into the wilderness, and left no time nor taste for a record of their lives and deeds; and this may, in a measure, account for the. sparse and fragmentary evidence of their history, the loss of which we now so much regret. The full genealogy upon which the compiler has been more or less diligently engaged since 1883, and subscriptions for which have been repeatedly solicited, records over four thousand of the descendants of Alexander Resseguie, in eight generations, and would form a printed book of seven hundred pages. Its abandonment and the substitution of the present little work arise from the complete failure of the many efforts to obtain subscriptions at all approaching the cost of the former; while the latter is offered in order that the attainable facts of the early history may be preserved.
