Anna Tallman

F, b. 15 December 1778, d. 7 October 1866
     Anna Tallman was born on 15 December 1778 at Harrisonburg, Rockingham Co., VA.1 She was the daughter of Benjamin Tallman and Dinah Boone. Anna Tallman married (?) Percy in 1795. Anna Tallman married Lewis Scothorn on 4 November 1800 at Rockingham Co., VA. Anna Tallman married William Turner after December 1815. Anna Tallman lived on 19 August 1850 at Walnut Twp., Pickaway Co., OH; Living with granddaughter Catherine (Trone) Long's family. She is also listed in her son Lewis Jr.'s household.1 She died on 7 October 1866 at Pickaway Co., OH, at age 87.
Note: per Herbert C. Probst 13173 County Road 215, Findley, Ohio 45840:

"In 1805 Lewis Scothorn left Virginia and crossed to Ohio. He took up a goodly piece of land in Walnut Twp., in Pickaway Co., Ohio, which although then was of a wild and unsettled section, was favourably located as to water, the first consideration among our pioneer fathers. He had married Anna Tallman (2nd) and six sons and two daughters were born to them bearing the names of Lewis, John, William, George, Charles, Samuel, Eliza and Sarah. Lewis Scothorn died in 1816, having lived in Walnut Twp. during the whole of his life in Ohio. He was a typical pioneer and gained a great local reputation as a woodsman, a great hunter and maker of moccasins. He was a man of great industry and began the clearing of the pioneer farm which he did not live to complete."

Anna Tallman had married first in Rockingham Co., a Mr. (James?) Piercy and they had two children: James Piercy who married (1) Nellie Peters; (2nd) Sally Noble and had 8 children - he died at Canal Winchester, Ohio; and Delilah Piercy who married Thomas Anderson and had 6 children - she died in Pickaway Co., Ohio.

"The widow of Lewis Scothorn subsequently married (third) a Mr. Turner and was generally known in her age as Grandmother Turner in her neighborhood, where she lived to advanced years.." (Mr. Turner died not long after this marriage).

Annah (Tallman) Piercy, Scothorn, Turner resided at the home of her son, Lewis S. Scothorn and his wife, Susannah Westenhaver and their six children. (1850 Census as quoted in "The Scothorn Family", by Ralph H. Lane 1955, page 55).

Note also that some descendants insist on the name as being "Annah", although she signed "Anna".

"Lewis Scothorn, the founder of the family in Ohio, lies in an old burying ground north of East Ringgold in a spot not far from the place where he first located when he came to Ohio. Where, in his day, waved the tall grass that concealed the richness of fertile land beneath, or grew the dense forest that harbored both wild beast and savage, now smile cultivated fields and on the pleasant slopes live his descendants, who, in his memory wish to preserve the old records. Full as they may be, they can never entirely portray the type of man who was able to leave an old civilized section and successfully combat the hardships and face the discouragements incident to establishing a home in an unbroken wilderness."

Taken in part, from "A History of Pickaway county, Ohio and Representative Citizens" by Aaron R. Van Cleaf 1906 pages 469-473. (in quotes) and "The Scothorn Family" by Ralph Lane. This data also came from the Greater Tallman Newsletter Autumn Issue, No. 11 1987, page 2.

Note: The 1850 census actually shows Anna Turner, age 74, living with her granddaughter Catherine (Trone) Long's family. DLB 2012.

M, b. 9 January 1745, d. 4 June 1820
     Note: HISTORY: In about 1778 (during the Revolutionary War), the Tallman family moved from Berks County, Pennsylvania south to the county of Augusta, Virginia, which later became Rockingham County. Possibly they had received favorable reports of that area from Dinah's uncle Squire Boone, who had previously lived there for about a year during his migration to Yadkin Vally, North Carolina. Ben and Dinah settled on Smith's Creek near the town of Harrisonburg. Their homestead at the foot of the Massanutten Mountain was adjoining that of the John Lincoln family who were close kin of the Tallmans. This John Lincoln being the great-grandfather of President Abraham Lincoln, was brother of Anne Lincoln Tallman. William and Anne Lincoln Tallman were parents of Benjamin (1745-1820), the Revolutionary soldier who married Dinah Boone. Benjamin Tallman, having served in the Pennsylvania Militia in 1777, reenlisted as a private from Virginia on March 27, 1782 and served in the Fourth Troop of the first Partisan Legion under Col. Charles Armand, Marquise De La Rouerie. The Fourth Troop was commanded by Capt. Claudius De Bert. (Ref: Pa. Archives, Series 3, Vol 3, page 152: Series 5, Vol. 3, p. 864 Continental Line, Fifth Pa. Jan 1, 1777-Jan 1, 1783). Benjamin and Dinah Tallman joined the Linville Creek Baptist Church near Harrisonburg, Virginia. In 1797, Benjamin was a delegate at a meeting in Loudoun County, of the Ketrockton Baptist Association when a plan was made for gradual emancipation of slaves. About 1810, Benjamin and Dinah removed to Fairfield County, Ohio with others of their family. Their Ohio homestead was near Canal Winchester.

Benjamin Tallman

M, b. 8 November 1791, d. 1871
     Note: Benjamin Tallman was a young man when the War of 1812 broke out and he enlisted. He was later commissioned Captain and led a company of soldiers, by way of Pennsylvania, down the Winchester Valley to Norfolk, Virginia. They remained there until peace was declared, at which time he was a Colonel of the 127th Regiment.

He did not return home to Harrisonburg, but instead his father's family followed him and they settled in Pocahontas County. There Benjamin married his first wife and they reared a family of five sons and one daughter. After his wife died, he married Jane Armstrong, with whom he had no children. In Pocahontas County he represented the county in the Virginia House of Delegates, and was for many years the ruling elder in the Liberty Presbyterian Church, as well as Justice of the Peace.

He sold out in Pocahontas County and relocated to Upshur County, West Virginia, settling on the farm of his son James who had settled there two years previously. Soon after, his sons Robert and Cyrus came to Upshur County. He and the three sons then jointly bought about 700 acres of land, known as the John C. Jackson tract in Upshur County. Later his other two sons, John and William, also relocated to Upshur County with their families.

In the spring of 1861 his second wife, Jane, died and in the fall of 1862 he married Sophronia Norvell of Sago, West Virginia. The farm recently owned by Key Bennett was originally their home.

On January 5, 1869 a U.S. Post Office was established on his farm and named in his honor, Tallmansville. He was the first Postmaster. Although the little village has now changed the name to Strader, the Post Office remains the same.

In the fall of 1871 he fell dead at the age of 84 and is buried at the Tallmansville Baptist Cemetery. His wife, Sophronia, was appointed to take his place as Postmaster March 27, 1872.

This information was furnished by Cora Amaretta (Tallman) Shipman at age 89, and published in the Greater Tallman Family Newsletter, No. 3, Fall 1985, and also in The Greater Tallman Family News Issue No. 11, Fall 1987, and was contributed to by Mrs. Helen (Lightburn) Boecher a descendant of Benjamin Tallman.
