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.

Benjamin Tallman married Elizabeth Warwick, daughter of William Warwick and Nancy Craig, circa 1815 at Pocahontas Co., VA. Benjamin Tallman married Jane Armstrong circa 1830. Benjamin Tallman lived in 1850 at Pocahontas Co., VA (now WV).1 He married Sophronia Norvell in 1862 at Upshur Co., WV. Benjamin Tallman died in 1871 at Tallmansville, Upshur Co., WV.

Benjamin B. Tallman

M, b. 25 May 1811, d. 25 November 1881
     Note: Around 1848 Benjamin moved to Jones County, Iowa from Canal Winchester, Franklin County, Ohio. Sometime in the 1850s Benjamin moved his family to the next county to the west, Linn County. He was involved with the United Brethren Church which founded a town and college at Western. Benjamin was the farm agent and resident agent for the college for many years. At one time he served on the Board of Regents. When the church founded the town it was hoped that the lots and nearby farms could be sold to the members thereby creating a strong religious community. They were also in a good position to be on a major north/south railway line. Such was not to be the case though. The railway located to both the east and west of the town by a few miles and an influx of immigrants from Bohemia bought up much of the surrounding land. The college fell on hard times and eventually closed. One of Benjamin's jobs was to operate the college farm. The farm provided a work/study program for needy students as well as a means for the college to earn outside income. Benjamin owned no land in Linn County until 1864 but he clearly lived there much earlier, so he probably resided on the college farm itself. He purchased 80 acres adjacent to the college farm just to the north (E1/2, SE1/4 Sec. 28-82-7). A barn that he built was still standing in 1987.

Benjamin died in 1881 and his wife Romancy moved to Rippey in Greene County, Iowa, to live with her daughter Amy. Another daughter, Eliza also lived around Rippey and Romancy later lived with her. There is also some indication that her son Miller also lived in the area for a while. There seems to have been quite an exodus of Tallmans to Greene County. Several sons of Benjamin's brother John also moved there. Many of Benjamin's younger children moved to Minnesota. Benjamin is buried in Western Cemetery in Linn County, Iowa.
