I am a desc of John Layton Romine and Margaret A. Bowie. John is a desc of Wm Romine and Mary Callahan. Wm's parents are Layton Romine and Rose Canterbury. Layton was married twice and had 24 children. John had 3 girls so named one of them William - my great-grand mother Willie. Later he had a son who died as a young child. I have info on the Romines but nothing on the Bowies.

Dan and Glenda,
Thanks for the reply. I would be very interested in getting a photo-copy of the original marraige records of my ancestors! Do you have info on the siblings of John? I'd be glad to send you whatever is of interest.
This is the info I have on John Layton Romine and Margaret A. Bowie:
(Altho your info says John 'S' instead of John 'L', I think it's the same one - they would look very similar in the old script letters.)
John - b. Sep 17, 1827 Rogersville, AL; m. Nov 22, 1848; d. Sep 11, 1875 MO.
Margaret - b. Apr 27, 1830; d. July 7, 1902 MO. Sister named Sarah b abt 1826
Ch - Mary A. b. 1849; Charles T. b. June 21, 1852, d. Feb 20, 1856 MS; Margarette E. b Nov 11, 1855, m. unk Norman, d. May 12, 1928; Frances "Fannie" M., b. 1859, m Elijah "Lige" Baker bef 1880, d. in MO; Martha J. b. July 2, 1863, d. Aug 22, 1872; William "Willie" (female) Asberry b. Feb 15, 1866 Dunklin Co., MO, m Charels Edward Smith Dec 14, 1884 Senath, MO, d. Jan 1944, Montebello, CA.; John B. b. May 10, 1868, d. Oct 26, 1875.
In the 1880 Dunklin Co census I found Margaret Bowie Romine age 50 living with her dau Margaret E. Norman age 25, her granddau Mary Norman age 6, her dau (my great-grm) Willie age 14, her sister Sarah age 54. There are NO men in the household then or in 1900 when Margaret (who lists 7 births and 3 living children) with divorced dau Elizabeth M. Romine who lists 1 birth but no living children, and granddaughter Elizabeth S. Norman, age 9. The children Mary and Elizabeth do not appear to be the same person, but Eliz M and Marg E could be - both daus of Margaret and with same birth year.
I have a photo of me as a tiny baby sitting in the lap of my Great Aunt Fannie Romine Baker in Montebello, CA.
