Fifth Generation (Great Great-Grandchildren)

27. Giulio (Guilio) Giovanni Vieceli (Viecelli) was born on 17 Jun 1880 in Fonzaso, Belluno, Italy

and died on 10 Mar 1966 in Detroit, Wayne, MI at age 85. The cause of his death was Heart attack.

General Notes: Nono came to America in 1906 by ship to stay with relatives and work in

the coal mine. Angie said Nono probably came over with someone in the family and met

his older brother, Luigi. Giuseppe, John (Giovanni), Antonio and Mose also came over at

some point. Two brothers, Tino (Antonio) and Guiseppe went back to Italy. Two of Nona's

brothers, Bortolo Sebben and (?), were also borders at their new home. Bortolo stayed

and the other returned to Italy. Angie says two of Nona's brothers returned, so I don't know

who else was here.

Nona and her son, Gigo, came through Ellis Island in 1907. For some reason, Nono

added an extra 'L" to his last name by the time he became an American citizen on August

26, 1911.

Nona and Nona were the best of grandparents. They maintained their Italian heritage,

values and close family ties. Lena and Uncle Mose lived with them while they lived.

My family would visit their place in Plymouth, MI almost every week while I was growing up.

They owned approximately two acres of land and raised grapes, apples, plums, peaches,

cherries and other fruits and vegetables, which they sold in their fruit stand on Plymouth

road. They also raised pigeons, rabbits and other animals. The geese served as watch

dogs and were very aggressive. They liked to bite our legs and feet if we got too close.

One of them made a very tasty Thanksgiving dinner one year at my father's place which I

still remember.

Nono liked to hunt and passed his 12-guage shotgun down to my brother Ron after he

died. I received his pocket watch which I gave to my father, Julian, to keep for me. Uncle

Mose served me a beer when I was seven or eight years old when I asked for some pop

at the kitchen table. Uncle Mose taught us kids how to throw pennies, nickles, dimes and

quarters into Easter eggs on the floor as an Easter game. We got to keep the money if we

succeeded.

Nono and Uncle Mose also made their own wine in the cellar. They used an old hand

washing machine to squeeze the juice out of the grapes. I can still smell the grape juice

as it fermented.

Nona was a great cook. She always had plenty of soup, spaghetti, palenta, pigeon stew

or other ethnic dishes for anyone who was hungry. The desert pastries were always

great. I remember her voice in particular. Nona had a low, husky voice which I heard

resulted from some sort of throat surgery. She clearly ran the househould when we

visited.

On October 19, 2003, I attended Uncle Jerry's 90th birthday party at a tavern near Nono

and Nona's former house in Plymoth, MI. A McDonald's sits on the site where their old fruit

stand once stood. The backyard is still empty, without the rows of grape vines and fruit

trees.

45. Julian (Julie) John Viecelli was born on 6 Jul 1922 in Claridge, PA and was christened in

1922 in PA.

General Notes: Julie was six years old when his family moved to Detroit, MI from Claridge,

PA.

My father was drafted November 28, 1942 into the Army during WW II and served in the

1ST and 5TH Army, 216TH Battallion Battery, Anti-Artillary and Aircraft unit as a PFC. He

fought in Africa under General Patton's 1ST Army. Then the AAA was transferred to the

5TH Army where he fought campaigns in Sicily, Italy, France and Germany. His unit won

several Bronze Stars in combat. He was never wounded in battle and returned home in

October, 1945.

Julie wanted to move to Alaska when he returned home. He met my mother at a roller rink

in 1945 and got married instead.

My parents moved from Garden City, MI to a farm in Webberville, MI in 1956 when I was

eight and a-half years old. My Dad continued to commute 50 miles one way to Burroughs

until he retired.

Most of my father's relatives live in Detroit. I remember visiting my grandparents, Nono

and Nona's home in Plymouth, almost every week before we moved to the farm.

Starting in 1966, my parents hosted the yearly family reunion on the farm for 25 years while

I was growing up. It was held on the third Sunday in August and is now held at Dennis

and Joan Matuja's place in Richmond, MI. The Viecelli's have always stayed close since

Nono and Nona immigrated to America in 1906 and 1907.

Plymouth where Julie went.

Earl and Vera divorced when Mom was 16. She met my father at a roller rink after the war.

They were married by a justice of the piece and lived at Nono and Nona's home for a short

time before buying a home in Garden City, MI. They had a church wedding a few years

later.

Mom raised us seven kids while Dad worked the afternoon shift at Burroughs. She helped

feed me while I attended college. She would bring chicken, patatoes and other things for

me to cook.

Mom is a big letter writer. I have several of her letters which describe everyday life on the

farm. Mom was always helping some family member out. She took care of her mother,

Vera, when she was sick and took care of Doris until she died.

General Notes: Aunt Angie and Uncle Pete lived in Troy, Michigan for as long as I have

known them. Aunt Angie still lives there at the age of 97. I remember visiting them often

while I was growing up. The first family reunion was held at their place when Nono

celebrated his 80th birthday in 1960. I still remember it well and the fun all of us kids had

on that day.

Aunt Angie and Uncle Pete always had a smile on their faces and attended almost every

family event. It is through Angie that I have a better understanding of Nono and Nono's

lives after they both immigrated to this country in 1906 and 1907.

Uncle Jerry liked to hunt and fish and visited my Dad's farm to hunt often. He still drives

out to visit my Dad every month even through he is now in his 90's. I attended Uncle Jerry's

90th birthday party in 2003. It was a fun time.

One thing I learned from Uncle Jerry was how to throw a baseball left-handed. He was

ambidextrous and could thow or catch a ball with either hand. At ouf family reunions on my

Dad's farm, Uncle Jerry would use whatever baseball glove was available to play on a

team. He became our pitcher and then our umpire during our softball games. I miss

those games now that we have grown older and few people want to play softball at our

family reunions.
