The spelling now would be RoloviŠ in Serbia and Montenegro. The Š gives it the sound of CH. The IC ending is a dimunitive meaning "son of". At the turn of the century some Dalmatians arr with H at the end of their name (this may have been due to Italian influences on spelling at that time) Checking Serbia on line phone book finds 20 RoloviŠ listings in the City of Belgrade alone!

There are listings at Ellis Island for several Milo's, one arr 1905 from Dalmatia destination Globe AZ to friend Pero ROLOVIC and another Milo arr 1906 destination to bro Niko in Globe AZ

There are 2 listings for ROLOVIC in US phone listings, judging by their given names they must have immigrated to the US vs born here.
