Mr. Fred A Molby writes: "Polly lived with her daughter, Frances Whitbeck. She and Alma Kendrick kept the Bible. They lived in the same state and I think their record is likely to be the correct one. Their record said that Polly died Mar. 2, 1908. Sally Wigent's Bible said she died Mar. 4, 1908, which may be the burial date."
The Tappan family had long lived at Dryden, Mich. Atchison Tappan's father, Asher, was son of Deacon John Tappan (1756-1818) and Sarah (Munson) Tappan.
