Some corrections need to be made here.

The William Vickery I am searching for was born in NY circa 1830, not 1820. His wife, Mary, was born in NT circa 1831. The only record I have for them is from the 1880 US Census
as follows:

1880 US Census for Flowerfield Twp., St. Joseph Co.,MI
Family History Library Film: 1254603
NA Film Number: T9-0603
Page Number: 325B

William VICKERY Self M Male W 50 NY Farm Labor NY NY
Mary VICKERY Wife M Female W 49 NY Keeps House NY NY
Albert J. VICKERY Son S Male W 28 MI Laborer NY NY
Charles VICKERY Son S Male W 12 MI At Home NY NY

I also have the marriage record for my great great grandparents:

Groom name: James Albert Vickery
Groom age: 33 years
Groom birth year: 1851
Groom birth place: Oakland Co., Mich.
Bride name: Almeretta Knapp Brady
Bride age: 25 years
Bride birth year: 1859
Bride birth place: Flowerfield
Marriage date: 03 Aug 1884
Marriage place: Flowerfield, St Joseph, Michigan
Film number: 2342475
Digital GS number: 4207803
Image number: 202
Reference number: v 3 p 234 rn 166
Collection: Michigan Marriages 1868-1925

Albert and Almaretta had one son named Frank V. Vickery (1885-1962). His first wife was Laura Clare "Daisy" BLOOD (1892-1954) by who he had three children. They were divorced in early 1921 in St. Joseph Co., MI and both remarried almost immediately. Frank's second wife was Ervilla Mae COOPER (1901-1965), daughter of William J. and Myrtle A. "Myrtie" (Vickery) Cooper. My guess is that Frank and Myrtie were cousins but I am not having much luck tracing Myrtie's Vickery line either. All I know is that her parents were Orson and Rosella (COOK) Vickery.

What seems to be causing most of the confusion is the number of William Vickerys residing in Michigan who were born in New York and had wives named Mary.
