Tallman Cemetery, Preston Township

This list of buried is considered to be at 95%.  All names below are those that can be successfully read as of summer 2000. Anyone with additional knowledge from past surveys, please consider adding to this list.   Corrections to this data have been provided by several people:   Davie Wells, November 2001; Bruce Campbell.  Feb 2002 he provided the following:  "One of the shortcomings is that Family monuments were placed with everyone's name inscribed -  this doesn't mean that they were eventually buried there.  C. P Tallman's stone has 1st wife's name on it --i.e. Lucinda King.  But she died in 1835 ( not 1885 as listed)  and the cemetery didn't exist until the 1860s.  The Campbell Stone has Julian Campbell's name on it - but he is not buried there, he is buried at Kirkwood Cemetery, Kirkwood, NY."

BACKGROUND In the C.P. Tallman Manuscript this is what Edwin E. Tallman wrote in 1899:  The Tallmansville Cemetery-it is located at Tallmansville, Pa. It was first surveyed Sept. 21st 1872 by Edwin E. Tallman. It was intended to be conveyed by Edwin E. Tallman and wife to C.P. Tallman, Samuel Tompkins, A.B. Tallman, S.P. Tallman and Omar A. Lakin, trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Tallmansville, Pa. A deed was prepared March 17th 1873, but on account of serious dissensions and more serious upheavals in the church they refused to deliver the same, and it was destroyed, Feb. 24th 1874. Burials however were permitted. Anticipating the use of this ground as a cemetery, my own children were buried there Nov. 25th 1863. Other burials followed there up to the present time. Sacred memories cluster around these graves, and this ground has become historic.
     It was recently conveyed by deed to LaVere Tallman as trustee, for the
exclusive use of the lineal descendants of C.P. Tallman, deceased and the wives and husbands, and the real estate of Edwin E. Tallman is charged with perpetual charge for the perpetuation and adornment.  (La Vere N. Tallman was son of Edwin E. and Mary Jane Tallman)
