Biography of Silva Sacchi
Sonoma County, CA Biographies





SILVA SACCHI.
The childhood days of Mr. Sacchi were passed on the parental homestead in Switzerland, where his birth occurred in 1873, and where he continued to make his home until he was about seventeen years of age. The year 1890 found him taking passage for the United States, and the same year found him in California, where, in Humboldt county, he engaged in agricultural pursuits altogether for the following sixteen years, first in the employ of others, and later interested in enterprises of his own. It was therefore with a large fund of experience at his command that Mr. Sacchi came to Sonoma county in 1906 and located on the ranch which he now owns and occupies near Sears Point. Here he has five hundred acres of land well adapted to the uses to which he puts it, raising hay and grain principally, the latter of which yields twenty five sacks to the acre, while three tons of hay per acre is an average yield. The raising of horses of high grade is also a feature worthy of note in connection with the ranch.

Before her marriage Mrs. Sacchi was Miss Severini Ambrazini, a native of Switzerland, besides whom there were three other children in her parents' family, as follows: Ferdinand, Victor and Olinda. No children have been born to Mr. Saechi and his wife. True to the training of their childhood years, they are stanch adherents of the Roman Catholic faith, attending the church at Sears Point.
