Euliss Propane History

Striving to be the #1 Propane Gas      
Supplier in Cental NC

In 1952, Seth Euliss and his wife, Lib, founded Euliss Oil Company in Liberty, NC. Seth was a WWII veteran and four-year POW who grew up in Liberty and was a local war hero. He and Lib raised four children and worked hard in a local hosiery mill, Liberty Hosiery. Seth began his small oil business with one kerosene/fuel oil truck and a tiny office. Seth set out to provide an alternative to electric heat in rural areas while he continued to work the third shift in the mill.

In 1975, Seth and Lib decided to retire. They sold their company to John Kester Stanley, Jr., a local banking officer and Kinston, NC native. John and his wife Louise Hunt Stanley, a public school teacher at Liberty School, were raising two young sons.

Over time, propane became the cleaner alternative to fuel oil heat. Throughout the 1980's, propane developed into the energy source of choice for Euliss Oil Company's customers and the business' name was changed to Euliss Propane Company to signal its new direction. Euliss Propane's customer base has grown to encompass four counties in North Carolina including Alamance, Chatham, Guilford and Randolph. Euliss Propane Company continues to strive to be the number one energy provider in central North Carolina and to live up to the honor of the Euliss family name.
