     Thomas Bell Tallman was born on 2 June 1820 at Walnut Twp., Pickaway Co., OH, At age 9 he moved with his parents to Virginia, the part that is now West Virginia. He grew to manhood there and learned the trade of carpentry and millright. In 1850 Thomas Bell Tallman moved his family to Iowa floating down the Ohio river in a flatboat to the Mississippi, then they took a steamboat to Keokuk. Shortly afterward, they moved with their family to Des Moines County, followed by another move to Henry County. They lived for a few years on a farm in Henry Co. About 1859, they moved back to Des Moines County west of Burlington, where they bought 10 acres of timber land. This land was improved; a house was built; an orchard and vineyard were planted. Early in 1869, they sold their little home in Des Moines County, and moved to Clarke County, Iowa, where they built a home for themselves in which to spend their old age. His health failed so rapidly that on the eighth day of September 1893, he peacefully closed his eyes in the last long sleep. On August 15, 1894 his wife joined him in their heavenly home. Uncle Tommy as he was familiarly known, was a man of exalted aims, sterling character, abounding good nature, and all pervading charity in word and deed, which endeared him to all who knew him. His limited amount of worldly goods made it necessary to work hard to make ends meet financially, yet he was ever ready to assist those in need. Thomas and Frances Tallman were good neighbors, true friends, loyal citizens and a kind father and mother.

He was the son of James Benton Tallman and Mary Bell. Thomas Bell Tallman married Frances Ann Gillespie on 16 November 1842 at Tyler Co., VA (now WV). Thomas Bell Tallman lived in July 1870 at Green Bay Twp., Clarke Co., IA.1 He died on 8 September 1893 at Clark Co., IA, at age 73.

Wilber the youngest son of John Tallman Jr. remained on his father's farm at Morley, Jones County, Iowa for 78 years. His descendants still reside in the area. From his home two miles northeast of Morley which he built when he retired from farming, he can look out over a countryside which which has spent most of his life. Just a few rods down the road west of Tallman's place is the farm on which he was born. He began his farming activities by assisting his father on the home farm until his marriage to Lila Merritt in Anamosa in 1886. After the marriage,the couple moved to another portion of his father's farm. His farm specialized in raising Angus cattle. It was in handling cattle that Tallman received a badly dislocated knee cap when he was about 35 years old. It is now after all these years that it has become a major problem. An interesting anecdote and mystery has come to light concerning the Tallman Farm, Jones County, Iowa, owned by John's son, Wilbur, in 1907 at the time of this story. The John Tallman family were descendants of Benjamin born 1684 son of Peter Tallman of Rode Island. Cousin Robert S. Tallman of Ortonville, MI writes that his family is descended from James (b. 1689), brother of Benjamin born 1684; sons of Peter Tallman of Rhode Island, and his 2nd wife, Joan Briggs. Family activity in his grandfather's day centered around Springfield, MA. Robert's father at age 13, ran away from home in 1907, working on railroad baggage cars all the way from Mass. to the Iowa farm of "Ellsworth Tallman", as he was known. Robert has a photo of the farm crew lined up in front of an Avery Steam Tractor and Thresher rig including his father, taken 1907 on "Uncle Ellsworth Tallman's" farm. Robert also has an article from "Engineers and Engines" magazine by Harleen Tallman, great granddaughter of Ellsworth Tallman, showing the same Avery farm equipment, and so, made contact with her. The mystery remains: How did Robert's father of Springfield Ma. at age 13 in 1907, know about the Jones Co., Iowa farm of Ellsworth Tallman? Robert has not found any connections between the two families, except the one way back in Rhode Island, ie the two brothers, Benjamin born 1684 and James born 1689, sons of Peter Tallman.

COUNTY FARM NEWS - THE ANAMOSA JOURNAL, June 12, 1941:

"W. E. Tallman spends 78 years in same locality - Retires after farming near Morley 50 years" From his home two miles northeast of Morley which he built when he retired from farming about five years ago, W. E. Tallman can look out over a countryside which has been his locale for 78 years. Just a few rods down the road west of Tallman's place is the farm on which he was born April 20, 1863 - a portion of which he farmed himself for 50 years. A son of John and Lucinda Tallman, he began his farming activities by assisting his father on the home farm until his marriage to Lila Merritt in Anamosa in 1886. After the marriage, the couple moved to another portion of his father's farm, built a new home and lived together there until Mrs. Tallman's death in 1924. After her death, Mr. Tallman kept up the family home with the help of his daughter, until five years ago. On the 120 acre tract Tallman specialized in raising Angus cattle. It was in handling cattle that Tallman received an injury he was about 35 years old, an injury which, though it bothered him only slightly for a number of years, is now responsible for a badly dislocated knee. However, except for the difficulty of getting around with his bad knee, he's healthy as they come, Mr. Tallman says. This year he is keeping three stands of bees in timber across the road. The 78 year-old farmer had just hived a swarm before The Journal Reporter arrived and a bump on his cheek attested that fact that one honeybee was a bit rebellious. The honey, however, is worth the stings he gets, Tallman declares. Last year, from only one hive, he got 140 pounds of comb honey - most of which was bought by neighbors. He and his daughter, Lily Tallman, who makes her home with him, do all the work in connection with the bee-keeping. When he isn't caring for his bees, Mr. Tallman spends much of his time reading the newspapers in an attempt to keep up with national affairs. He admits, like so many others these days, that recent events have left him "all at sea", and that the future "looks pretty dark". "I can't agree, however" he says, "with the theory that's being advanced now that the extreme terms of the last World War Treaty are partly responsible for the present situation. I don't think they were extreme enough," he declares emphatically. With eight children, 14 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren all located within a radius of a few miles, Tallman does not find his days lonely. When he celebrated his 78 birthday on April 20, every one of his children and their families called on him during the day.. Tallman's oldest son, Ellsworth, Lives in Morley and operates a sawmill just across the road from his father's place. A daughter, Mrs. Avert Cook and her family live just 80 rods south, and the farm land of his son, John, who lives a mile north, adjoins Tallman's land. Another son, Marion Tallman is employed by the county and lives in Anamosa; two daughters, Mrs. Otis Siver and Mrs. Uriah Pieper are neighbors on Lisbon road southwest of Morley. Miss Mary Tallman makes her home in Anamosa and Miss Lily Tallman lives with her father. Mr. Tallman attributes his long life "mostly to luck" and feels that it's good fortune, too which surrounds him with his children and grandchildren as neighbors. Note: This article was sent by Florence Pieper Duncan (Mrs. Ivan Duncan) of Olin, Iowa who says "Grandpa was a very big man. He played the mouth organ, Jews harp and violin."

Wilbur Ellsworth Tallman was born on 20 April 1863 at Viroqua (now Morley), Jones Co., IA. He was the son of John Tallman and Lucinda Low.
