In answer to your question about the connection of Robert Tapscott to his parents, my book "Henry the Immigrant, the First Tapscotts of Virginia" has the following footnote:
A Commissioner’s report presented at a Lancaster County Court of 21 January 1828 on the settlement of Mary’s estate giving a division of 10 slaves among the children as 1 ¼ slaves each shows that there were eight children living at the time of Mary’s death (Lancaster County, Virginia, Estate Book 1824-1830, pp. 300-302). Another report, dated 1 June 1824, relates the division of the combined slaves from the estates of John Sr. and Mary Spillman Tapscott and three of their deceased children—John Jr., Richard, and Nancy Lancaster County, Virginia, Estate Book 1820-1825, pp. 337-338). A fourth child, Alice, was also deceased by this time since one of the heirs named was her husband, George Webb, as guardian of the children. The other heirs named were John and Mary’s remaining children, Robert, Henry, Lucy (husband, Lawson George), and Catherine (husband, George Brent Jr.).
Robert is specifically named.
Robert E. Tapscott
