Yes, this family is mentioned in Bishops History 1774-1927.
Romine: Of Curtis and Harper Districts.
Samuel Romine and his wife, Nancy (Dearman) Romine, natives of Harrison County, where they had been married, left there and came to upper Left Fork of Reedy in the year 1854. To them were born and by them reared five sons and two daughters, all except one of which children were born in Harrison County.
John M Romine, son of Samuel and Nancy, married Miss Sarah Riley, of Flat Fork, September 15, 1866. They made their home on Flat Fork and there reared a family.

Also, in the 1850 Harrison County Census:
Samuel Romine 39 Farmer
Nancy 32
Elizabeth 13
Sarah 11
John 16
Benjamin 8
James P 6
George 2

They are also listed in the 1880 Roane County Census living next door to each other (Samuel and John).

Hope this helps.
