Romagna Gallaway Mackie was born August 27, 1905 in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia the daughter of William Francis Gallaway, Sr. and Valesca "Vallie" Adeline Miller Riley Gallaway. Romagna had one brother, William Francis Gallaway, Jr. Her ancestry was Scots and German.
She was the wife of Ernest Lloyd Mackie (1909-1975), a mathematics professor and dean at the University of North Carolina. They had two children, William Ernest Mackie and Anne Mackie Fitzgibbon. Romagna died at age 75 on September 17, 1980 in Chapel Hill, Orange County, North Carolina. A collection of her letters is at the University of North Carolina library in Chapel Hill. Named for her mother's sister, Romana H. Miller Riley, she was called "Little Romagna." I hope one of her descendents will add her photo to this site. Her husband is buried at the New Garden Friends Cemetery in Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina near his parents.
Thanks so much to Riley family researchers for so much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. If a closer relative than I would like to manage this burial site, please let me know.
