He then went to Liverpool, where he followed the same business for two and a half years. He then shipped for San Francisco, arriving March 14, 1850. Here he followed different occupations for a few months, when he opened a grocery store on Sacramento street, which he kept until 1853; when he sold out, and opened again in the same business on the corner of Pine and Mary streets, where he continued for three years. In 1856 he disposed of his stock and came to Mendocino county and located on land about one half mile south of Ukiah, where he lived until 1861. He then traded his land for a farm at. Little Lake, to which place he moved and stayed there one winter. He then, in the spring of 1862, started, in company with three other men, for John Day's river, with a drove of cattle. When they reached Sacramento they decided that it was not advisable to take the stock there, so Mr. Gobbi remained with them and sold them. He then returned to Ukiah, where he remained until the spring of 1863, when he joined his party at John Day's river. He returned to Ukiah again in the fall, where he speculated in hogs and cattle until 1865, when he took a drove of five hundred and sixty five head of cattle to John Day's, and remained there until July, 1866, when he again returned to this county; here he was engaged in speculating in stock until 1868. He then made a trip to his native land, England, being absent eight months. He then returned to Ukiah, where he has since resided. Mr. Gobbi married, in 1872, Mrs. Maria Macca, a native of Italy. She had, by her first husband, six children: Julliano, Domemica, Muligarretta, Johnnie, Patheonelia, and Cathrinia.
