Melvin is the 3rd child of 14;
he is the son of
Sven P Rosen & Mathilda Bjorklund Rosen.

Melvin's parents were just starting out their new family and building a home.

A few Notes from his baby sister's, Hilda; memory book
"They must have gotten into the house before June, because Melvin our oldest brother was born June 9, 1896. The first child born in the bedroom on the home place, where the rest of us were born."

There was a terrible fire on the farm this year; it is said that Mathilda took the 3 children and placed them in a well bucket and lowered them down.

At some point when Melvin was very young he had typhoid fever.

Year 1918 Melvin went to camp, he had the war flu and it left him with a heart murmur. The following year in 1919 Melvin took over the family farm.

Melvin farmed for years and when he retired, lived in Berring Springs, MI. He passed away there, having a full military funeral at Clear Lake. All Clear Lake had flags in his honor and the 21 gun salute.

Melvin was a good son; after his mother passed away he helped his father as much as he could. When his baby sister Hilda was 7yrs old she went to live with Melvin for a few years. Melvin also bought the family farm and lived there for years.
