Chances are very good that this is a member of my Romans family. The Wilders and Romans moved to Michigan from New York and had large families. I'm unsure how your Romans connects to mine, but here is what I have so far:
Leah Romans was the daughter of Peter Milo and Catharina Van Deusen Romans. They had the following children, according to Priscilla Romans Hexter, who has done extensive research into the Romans family:
Barent b. 1784
Lea b. 1787
Robert Cornelius b. 1790
Maria "Mina" b. 1792 d. 1865
Margaret b. 1794
Gertrude b. 1796
Hubertus b. 1797
Peter Milo b. 1804 d. 1878
John b. 1806 d. 1878
Peter Milo Romans b. 1804 married Harriet Ruth Woodward in New York. They moved to Michigan in the late 1840's. They had born to them:
Squire Peter b. 1833 d. 1899
Edwin (or Edward) H. b. 1836 d. 1894
Jane b. 1838
John b. 1840
Clement b. 1842
Ellen Maria b. 1844 d. 1921
Barnard (Bart) b. 1846 d. 1926
Manly b. 1848
Milo Bernard b. 1849 d. 1919
Justus (Justice, Judd) b. 1851 d. 1933
All of this information was given to me by Priscilla Romans Hexter, who is the great granddaughter of Peter Milo Romans b. 1804. I do not know which of Peter's sons was her grandfather, but I do know that she and her brothers live on the West coast: California and Oregon, which leads me to speculate that her branch of the family migrated out west.
I hope this helps.
Peter Milo Romans Sr. was the son of Bernard Romans, who was quite famous. If you do a Google search for him, you'll find much information.
I hope this helps you.
