Please change Mr. Spicely's " Jr." to "Sr" as he is the father of the family. He has a son named
Nelson Daniel Spicely,Jr. As they are my direct

|Greg Lovelace||Anna Sophia Olson Rosequist, memorial #166657693|
Hi. I have been researching the Rosequist family now for several years, and actually made a trip to Melrose Cemetery a few years back in February, searching for the grave there of my wife's grandmother Ina Victoria (Rosequist) MacNevin. There was over a foot of snow on the ground then, and we were unable to locate the flat marker. But we did see the marker attached to this memorial. We did not notice the 3rd person listed on the marker, Anna S. Rosequist 1840-1912. The first two people listed, Ernest A. Rosequist and Anna E. Rosequist, are my wife's great-grandparents. Anna Sophia Rosequist appears to be Ernest's mother, based on her listing in the 1910 census with Ernest's brother Oscar Rosequest [sic]. I notice your memorial supplies her with the middle name Sophia and a maiden name of Olson, along with complete birth and death dates. May I ask where you found that information? I am the designated family historian for my mother-in-law and would really appreciate a source for this information. I would prefer an email reply if possible... greg AT part-of-the-tree.com Thank you in advance.

|Descendant||RE: Marcus Martin Hollis at Melrose|
I appreciate your suggestions.
FYI; I extensively double-checked W/ Melrose under all possible family names. MMH'S 3rd wife was alive when he perished in the Pembroke woods (she later remarried.) MMH's body was sent back home. My Archivist pals suggest that I comb Melrose stone by stone, as his Obit & DC state burial in Melrose (1/3 mile away), albeit my reason for contacting you, as you seem to be doing so. My priority right now, is spending time at my recently departed beloved Mom's grave. Slowly, I have begun to visit other family's graves. I am familiar w/ all Plymouth Co. cemeteries, as a 13th generation MA native. I also am familiar w/ most Norfolk Co. cemeteries.
I was aware of MMH's 2nd wife's grave at Union in Holbrook (I also have lots of Ancestors there on both sides.)
Should some day, you happen upon MMH's gravestone, please let me know. I will let you know if I find it on my own.
In what capacity are you involved with brocktoncemeteryfriends (or whatever the Facebook page was.) If you have a non-public email which you are willing to share, please let me know. I do not know if you live in town.
Thank you for your response & suggestions. My Dad is quite curious as to your involvement in the community (he is 91 & a city native - he knows everyone!)
|Descendant||Marcus Martin Hollis at Melrose|
My parents & I have been looking for Marcus M. Hollis' grave for decades. Supposedly, he is buried at Melrose (per his DC & Obit.) I have been to the office, but there is no record there of his burial there or at Coweesett.
My next task would be to traverse the entire cemetery. However, it seems as if you have been photographing graves in the older sections that have not already posted on Find A Grave, etc.
If you ever come across his grave (he died 5 Dec. 1902 and was born in 1841), please let me know. He was my Great, Great-Grandfather.
I would appreciate it.
