JOSEPH VIERRA MARCIEL: Born at Kahikinui, Maui, on Nov. 1, 1882; Died Nov. 7, 1949, at Kaupō, Maui. JOSEPHINE KEALOHA AKIONA MARCIEL: Born at Kīpahulu, Maui, on Dec. 4, 1888; Died Sept. 1, 1966, at Wailuku, Maui.
Joseph worked as a stable boy in Kīpahulu. He then moved to Kaupō and worked as a ranch hand for his father along with his brothers Tony and Frank. When the county of Maui built the Kaupō water line, he worked as an inspector. Josephine performed many chores, i.e., raising a large family, a good Hawaiian Paniola when rounding cattle and a leader in the Fishing Hui.
When Joe moved to Kaupō, he and his family lived in one to his father’s houses on the ranch. This house contained a large dining room to serve up to twenty people. Joe and Kealoha not only prepared the meals but provided companionship to his father. The house became too small as Joe’s family increased. A large home was built on land owned by Kealoha, his wife, with money received from the sale of his share of the land given by his father. The sole occupant of this house is his son Francis; all others have moved away. The house is situated in the valley just mauka of his brother’s Tony’s home.
Joe and Kealoha were blessed with fourteen children--seven sons and eight daughters: Edward, Roseline, Raymond, Francis (Tito), Christina, Wilhelmina (Mina), Irene, Victor, Pauline, Kenneth, Richard, Ivy, Alma, Leland
