1937 letter from A. P. Strother descendant to Jack Tapp: "Ann Tapp, my great-grandmother was daughter of William Tapp and Jemima Hopper, his wife." Her sisters: "Jemima married Richard Dennis, Dolly married Richard Pinnell, Rebecca married James Amiss, Susan married Matthew Jett, and Mary Married R. T. Basye (to Howard County Mo)."
The list of her children is from a land transaction in Trimble Co., KY in October 1849 Many genealogists have attributed a William Spillman as her first child however he was not named in the 1849 document. And the letter of A. P. Strother indicates she and Henry did have a son named William. However, in that letter there is a discrepancy in the generations. Henry Spillman, son of Henry Spillman, had a son named William Spillman. However, there were two men named William Spillman paying taxes in 1828 and 1829 in what later became Trimble Co., KY. The Gallatin Spillmans had a William Spillman born about 1800 paying taxes in Gallatin Co., KY in 1828 and 1829. (value of land $35.) The Oldham Co., William Spillman is listed next to Jacob Spillman in 1828 no land value listed. He is also listed in 1829 tax list and then disappears. Ann Spillman, widow of Henry Spillman, sells the land in Westport in 1828 but does not show up in the tax records till 1834 when she buys land from James Hargan in Oldham Co., KY
In a letter by A. P. Strother in 1937 she is connected to her brother, William Tapp, who was named an uncle to William Newton Tapp. However, William Tapp would have been a great uncle to William Newton Tapp. See reference to letter on page for Henry Spillman Jr.
