- Evelina Wood wrote on 14 May 1855, to her daughter Lizzie Powell, undergoing treatment for cancer in Murfreesboro, Tennessee: ". . . Dr Spiller Asks Campbell to bring him Mr Powell's letter every week. . . . Mrs Dr Spiller took dinner here Yesterday, she said give her love to you and send Wood a kiss -- Virginia has got well. . . ." Letter in private collection of B. M.

- Elizabeth E. Kyle died circa August 1860 in Walker County, Texas, . She was enumerated in the 1860 census on 30 July 1860, so apparently the 1860 Walker County Mortality Schedule listed persons who died beyond the specified "Year ending 1st June 1860": E Spiller, age 40, born in Virginia, "Died of Grief," in August (apparently August 1860, not 1859).
- Were Elizabeth E. Kyle and Caroline Kyle sisters?
