The young couple had four children in quick succession:
- Arthur Joseph Raymo, born 3 July 1906
- Charlotte Alma Raymo, born 28 November 1907
- Chester Theodore Raymo, born 27 March 1909
- Roger Daniel Raymo, born 19 August 1910
Arthur was born in Nankin. Charlotte, Chester and Roger were born in nearby Dearborn. On Arthur's birth registration, his father's occupation is given as "farmer." By the time Charlotte was born, Arthur Sr. was a "bookkeeper" and living in Dearborn.
The family also appears in the 1910 United States Federal Census of Dearborn, Michigan.
Arthur, Margaret and their first three children (Roger was not born at the time they were enumerated) are living in a rented house on Garrison Avenue in Dearborn. This is before the automobile boom so Dearborn is still a small township. In addition, Arthur's occupation is listed as bookkeeper for the Electric L(ight?) Company.
Also living with them is Margaret's 18 year old younger sister Josephine Merrow. The rest of the Merrow family had moved to Tennessee a few years prior. Josephine would later become a nurse for the U.S. Army.
The family's stay in Dearborn was brief as Arthur soon accepted a new job which also brought him and his family to Tennessee.
