In Reply to: Jeremiah Romans & Mary Freeman - OH & MO by Pam in WA of 466

Well darn it! I found my notes (re: previous posting) and I apparently had determined that Jeremiah was probably not the son of William & Nancy. He was most likely a nephew of William's but I never researched that possibility. I do, however, have a lot on Mary Ann's family.

Here's what I have on William & Nancy Romans. William (b. 1814 VA - d. 1902 OH), a carpenter, and Nancy (b. 1817 VA - d. 1900 OH) had at least five children: Greenville (1840 KY), Lucretia Pricie (Feb 1840-1845 KY), James A. (1848 KY), Mary Elizabeth (1848-1854 KY), and Nancy Jane (1859-1878). Greenville married Elizabeth _____ around 1872 in Ohio. Pricie married Jacob J. Lynd, son of James and Elizabeth (Bowman) Freeman, and James married Elizabeth McClure. I have more info on both Pricie and James if you're interested.

Mary Ann Freeman's parents were William D. Freeman & Mary Ann Bowman.

Mary Ann was born in 1821 in Lawrence Co., Ohio and died sometime after 1880. She was the daughter of Jacob Bowman (c1792 MD - 1867 OH) and Mary Ann Buffington (1797 PA - 1881 OH). She married William D. Freeman (b. 1814 VA - d. 1865-1870 OH) on 29 May 1842 in Lawrence Co., OH.

William D. was the son of William Freeman (b. c1775 VA - d. 1848 OH) and Sarah Parker (1779 VA - 1860 OH). William and Sarah moved to Ohio from Pittsylvania Co., Virginia between 1814-1819. They finally settled in Lawrence County in 1828. They had at least six children: David P., Elizabeth, George P., William D., Sarah, and Moses Alfred.

William and Mary lived on Willow Creek and had seven children: Elizabeth J. (1846) married Anderson Bone; Mary Ann (1847) married Jeremiah Romans; James Kelley (b. November 1845/October 1849 OH - d. 16 October 1941 OH) married Mary Elizabeth Romans (mentioned above); Sarah Alice (b. 3 November 1853/1854 OH - d. 22 March 1919 OH) married James Day; William E. (b. 1854 OH - d. after 1900) married Martha Runyan; Susan M. (b. July 1856 OH - d. 1939 OH) married David Martin Banks; and Daniel Thomas (b. 4 April 1864 OH - d. 6 September 1933 OH) married Ella Banks.

I have much more on the Bowmans, Buffingtons and Freemans if you're interested.
