Biography of Frank Cereda
Solano County, CA Biographies





FRANK CEREDA.
Frank Cereda, one of the leading citizens and successful fruit growers of Green valley, has had an eminently active and useful life, but the limited space of a biographical sketch permits mention of only the salient facts in his career. He has performed well his part in life and it is a compliment worthily bestowed to say that the community is honored by his citizenship. Frank Cereda is a native of Solano county, having been born in Suisun valley on the 23d of April, 1887, and he is a son of Carlo and Teresa Cereda. The father came to this locality in young manhood, later returning to his old home to be married. On his arrival here the second time he settled in Suisun valley, where he owned a vineyard. On first arriving here he had been employed as a foreman on the Pierce ranch, where he had remained for twenty years. He subsequently bought the Durbson ranch of sixty five acres in Green valley, and there he continued to reside until his death, which occurred in 1924. His widow is still living and enjoys to the highest degree the love and esteem of all who know her.

Frank Cereda received his education in the public schools, and from his early boyhood he contributed his labor to the operation of the home farm, which he rented about eight years prior to his father's death. He devoted himself indefatigably to it, and since the demise of his father he has assumed entire control. The greater portion of this valuable ranch is planted to fruit, mainly cherries. Mr. Cereda is thoroughly practical in all that he does, understands every phase of fruit raising and cultivation and is an able and sagacious business man. Politically he is an ardent republican and takes a commendable interest in local public affairs, supporting all measures or movements for the advancement of the community welfare.
