1Marriage: Records found by Barb Curtindale April 2002, Entry #9, pg 94 Arenac County return of Marriages March 31, 1901.

Robert J ERVINGHAM, age 23, laborer, born in Canada, son of Ira married March 8, 1901 in Cedar Valley, Arenac County, MI to Rachel VIELY (sic) "VIELE", age 18, domestic, dau of Geary (sic) VIELY & Jennie WRIGHT. Married by James E. Allen, Justice. Witness; George WARREN of Turner & Belle ERVINGHAM of Turner.

IGI Record shows Garry VIELE married Jennie WRIGHT May 19, 1881 in Bay, MI. (spelling ?) No record of any (VIELY) as Robert & Rachel's marriage record indicates, however, Iosco, Arenac and Bay County have records of (VIELE). This is most likely the correct spelling.
