sanantoniowedding_0008A. C. Paris, the proprietor of the City Gallery of San Antonio, Texas, produced this elegant wedding portrait . On the reverse of the cabinet card is an inscription stating “Alex Rossy, Josephine Fink’s father”. The cabinet card’s edges are gold embossed and scalloped. Census research reveals that the groom in this image, Alex Rossy (1862-1925) was the son of Charles and Aminda Rossy. Alex’s father was of Austrian ancestry. The 1880 US census reports that Alex was the fourth of seven children living in the Rossy’s home. San Antonio business directories assert that Alex’s occupation for many years was “Cigar Manufacturer”. Josephine Fink was actually Josephine Rossy Fink (1897-1980) and she was the daughter of Alex Rossy. She later became the wife of Lewis Fink.
