Note: Conversation June 19, 2001 with Margaret (Roche) Hollingshead
Margaret was Graeme's and Marjorie's flower girl at their wedding at the age of 5. Margaret was the daughter of Hollis Roche, a close friend of Graeme's and May. She recalls a well-kept secret of the Roche family that Marjorie was adopted. According to her, Graeme was taken aside by Marjorie's mother sometime near the wedding and advised that Marjorie was adopted and she had never been told. The story goes that Sam and Minnie got her 'from California' and that Margaret Hollingshead can remember Marjorie returning from visiting friends in California and talking how comfortable she had been and that they had seemed "just like brothers and sisters.' Margaret and her sisters wondered if maybe this was the family that she had been born to.
When Hollis was adopted by Graeme and Marjorie, according to Margaret, Marjorie wanted him to know but it was Graeme who insisted that it should be kept a secret.
