Home of Antone and Lily Marciel when construction was near completion
Antone was a rancher and Lily was a teacher in Kaupō, Maui.
Our home was situated in a valley just below the Kaupō Gap. From the front of our house we had an unobtrusive view of the ocean and North Kohala on the Big Island. From the back of our house the view of the multiple falls of Maunawainui and Kaupō Gap is a panorama long to be remembered. This area was blessed with fertile soil and rainfall. Long before the installation of a pipeline for water became a fact, rainfall was the only source collected in large tanks for personal use and livestock use. In childhood we remember the hardships our parents went through in building our house. The lumber was thrown overboard by an inter-island steamer at Mokulau Landing and gathered ashore, placed on sleighs and drawn by horses to our homesite. Kaupō was an isolated area then, cut off from the outside world. The population and language were predominantly Hawaiian. To get to the outside the means of transportation was on horseback or on foot. For cooking we used a wood stove, for light kerosene lamps and charcoal iron. We had large fields of coffee trees, corn, beans, papaya and sweet potatoes and raised chickens, turkeys, and pigs and cattle.
Antone and Lily were blessed with five children--a son and four daughters: Lei, Herbert, Mildred, Gladys, Letty
The object of this Reunion Committee shall be to commemorate the storied heritage of the late Antone Vieira Marciel, Sr. and Loke Kaʻilikea of Kaupō, Maui, Ko Hawaiʻi Pae ʻĀina (Hawaiian Islands), and to perpetuate their beloved legacy for the current and future generations of this perennial family tree.
