  • Notes 
    • From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996.

      Elvira Ray, called Vie by her family and friends, was born at the home of her grandmother Bigelow in Provo. She was the fifth child of the nine children born to William Walter and Elvira Lillian Bigelow. She wanted to enter an acting career, but this her father forbid. She had learned the trade of a candy dipper while she was attending school, and she worked at that trade after she graduated from high school.

      She met her husband-to-be who worked not far away. After they had the first two children, Vie and her family moved to Union and little Marion Elvira was born.

      One day when Marion was just about a year old, she was left with a neighbor while Vie went shopping. The baby, who was just beginning to walk, bumped her head on a corner of the table. When Vie returned home, she was quite concerned about it, but the baby seemed all right so a doctor wasn't called in. The baby kept falling and irritating the bump so they finally called in a doctor, who opened the wound and cleaned it.

      Shortly after this, the baby had convulsions and died. Vie had a series of stillborn child and then started a downhill slide of illnesses culminating death due to uremia.
