Marius M. Jorve was the brother of Gilbert Jorve. The two brothers came to Ypsilanti, and built the Jorve Bros. Hardware Store in 1909. With his wife and family, Marius lived in the apartment above the store. Later, Edward Jorve came to Ypsilanti to help his brothers with the hardware. When Marius moved to LaMoure to open his own hardware store there, Edward moved there to help him.
Mr. and Mrs. Marius Jorve had two children, Ethelyne and Bolthun.
