Eugene Proletti is the proprietor of the livery, feed and sale stable of Anderson, where sojourners will find lively roadsters and well equipped turnouts at the most reasonable prices, the proprietor being a man of practical experience in the business and of a gentlemanly nature, who studies to please his patrons, and by that method has gained for himself and his stables a reputation second to none in Shasta County. Mr. Proletti was born in Crevia, Piedmont, Italy, in 1855, where he was educated and reared to farm life. His parents were Vincenzo and Annie (Anderlina) Proletti, both natives of Italy. He came to America in 1869, locating in Sonoma County, California, where he engaged in farming and stockraising. In connection with his ranch he also conducted a dairy, being successful in this enterprise during the years he was connected with it. Selling out his ranch in 1879, he next came to Anderson, Shasta County, and engaged in his present business.
Mr. Proletti is a Republican in principle, but takes no part in politics,
devoting his entire time to the business he believes himself best adapted
for. He is a single man, and the fifth of ten children in his fatherís
family, three beside himself being in America, and the remainder of the
family residing in their native land.
