Alfred Guyan, whose fine dairy farm is located in the American canon, enjoys a fine reputation among the younger
generation of ranchers in Solano county because of his persistent industry, good judgment and fine character, as
well as from the fact that he is a member of one of the prominent and highly respected families of this locality.
He was born on the farm where he now lives, on the 10th of July, 1900, and is a son of John and Lena (Bauchman)
Guyan, the former of whom died September 16, 1910. Both parents came to California early in their lives and met
and were married in San Francisco. Later they settled in Solano county, the father securing a tract of land in
the American canon, where he took up ranching and established a good home, and there he spent his remaining years.
After his death his widow continued to operate the home place until 1925, when her son Alfred took it over, and
he is now operating it.
Alfred Guyan secured his education in the district schools of his home neighborhood, and he thoroughly understands
the operation of the farm, having already demonstrated his ability and substantial worth. The place is devoted
largely to dairy purposes and Mr. Guyan is now milking twenty five cows. A portion of the tract is in orchard,
while the remainder is largely hay and pasture land. Politically Mr. Guyan is an ardent supporter of the republican
party and takes a good citizen's interest in public affairs, while fraternally he is a member of the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows.
