ANGELO PUCCIONI.
One of the youngest representatives of the Italian-American citizens in Sonoma county, Cal., is Angelo Puccioni, the owner of a thriving ranch in Mendocino township. Born near the town of Lucca. Italy, in 1870, he remained there long enough to realize by contrast with other countries that his own was deficient in opportunity, and as soon as the wherewithal for his passage to the United States could be secured he made the voyage that brought him to his present comfortable surroundings. Here, in Mendocino township, he is the owner of a splendid tract of one hundred and sixty eight acres, which at the time of purchase was covered with a heavy growth of timber, but much of this has by his energetic efforts been cleared and placed under cultivation, and no one could take greater pride in his accomplishments than does Mr. Puccioni. He has forty acres in vineyard and four acres in hay, and the remainder of the land is still rich in fine timber.

In all of his laborious efforts to make a home for his family Mr. Puccioni has had the help and cooperation of his wife, who was born in Italy in 188o as Dalia Buchingani. She was the daughter of John and Nancy (Rossa) Buchingani, who were born in Italy, and who came to the United States with their family of four children in 1887. Named in the order of their birth they were as follows: Lester, Richard, Isabell and Dalia, the latter the wife of Mr. Puccioni. Lester was married in Italy, but no children were born of the union. Isabell married Joe Nanie, and became the mother of two children, Joe and Ida. Six children, two sons and four daughters, have been born of the marriage of Mr. Puccioni and his wife, as follows: John. Louis, Julia, Lena, Rosie and Marie. Those who have watched Mr. Puccioni's efforts since his location on his present ranch have been amazed at the transformation which he has wrought and confidently predict even greater things at his hands.
