      From the book, "Rhode Island Genealogical Register, Volumes 1 & 2", by Alden G. Beaman, Ph.D., page 271:

      "TALLMAN, Peter, of Ti, yeoman. Will dated 4 July 1774, proved 2 June 1783, pgs 346-347. Mentions: Son Stephen Tallman. My son so so called Jeremiah Tallman Rogers the son of Patience Rogers. Daughters Macy Cook wife of Joseph Cook & Patience Slocum dec formerly wife of son-in-law Samuel Slocum leaving 3 unnamed granddaughters. Granddaughters Ruth Hall & Sarah Hall. Witn: Abner Durfee, Lydia Durfee, Benjn Hambly. "

      Note: this links Jeremiah Tallman Rogers to this Peter Tallman. He may have possibly been the illegitimate son of Peter and Patience (?) Rogers.

      Will of James Tallman, dated January 11, 1723/4, Portsmouth, Newport Co., Rhode Island:

      Peter is mentioned in his father's, James Tallman's will.

      From the document, "Cook-Tallman Connections" by Cynthia C. Cook, dated January 5, 2004:

      Sarah, born about 1707 at Tiverton, married Peter(2) Tallman at Portsmouth on 7 November 1724. She probably died before October 1754. Peter(2) Tallman, as you already know, was the son of Dr. James Tallman and his second wife, Hannah Swain; James was the son of the original Peter Talman and his second wife, Joan Briggs. Dr. James was born in 1668 at Portsmouth and died in 1724. Peter(2) Tallman died at Tiverton, which was then in Rhode Island, about 1783.

      ... Sarah Cook and Peter(2) Tallman had three children: Patience, who is not of further interest to us; Stephen; and Mary. Stephen Tallman married his cousin Mary Cook (daughter of his mother's brother Joseph), and Mary Tallman married her cousin Joseph Cook Jr. (son of her mother's brother Joseph).

      However! It appears that Peter Tallman, later in life, perhaps after the death of his wife Sarah, fathered another child, Jeremiah, with "Patience Rogers, spinster." In his will, dated 1774 and probated in 1783, Peter Tallman left his homestead farm to Jeremiah Tallman Rogers "so-called," son of Patience Rogers. Later, Patience Rogers, "spinster," and Jeremiah Tallman Rogers had to sue Peter Tallman's legitimate son Stephen to gain possession of the farm. (Records on this are cited in Jane Fiske's book.) I would guess that it is this Jeremiah Tallman who settled in Berne, New York, in 1799.
      ... "

      From the book, "Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island", by Jane Fletcher Fiske (page 121-122):

      "Sarah Cook, daughter of Thomas Cook and his wife Elizabeth Pearce"
      "She married at Portsmouth, 7 November 1724, by Gideon Freeborn, Justice, (intentions 19 October at Tiverton), to Peter Tallman, son of Dr. James and Hannah (Swain) Tallman. He was born 17 June 1706 at Portsmouth and died 11 May 1783 at Tiverton (date from count case, cited below). By the will of his father, dated 11 November 1723, Peter received 50 acres in Tiverton.

      On 17 January 1724/5 "Peter Tolman being bound for recognizance to appear at this Court made his personal appearance to answer to begetting of Sarah Cook with child and Sarah Cook being likewise bound to appear at this Court for whom her father Mr. Cook appeared and Peter Tolman and Cook declaring that they werer married the Court therefore considered that ye said Tolman pay a fine of twenty shillings for sd crime to His Majesty ..." (Bristol County Court of General Sessions 1714-1738, vol. 2, p. 14 front).

      On 13 January 1727/8 Peter Tallman, yeoman, and wife Sarah, of Tiverton, sold some land there to Josiah Stafford. On 31 October 1754 when Peter Tallman, innholder, sold land to Blake Perry, Sarah did not sign (Tiverton Deeds 3:257; 4:131).

      On 12 July 1756 Peter Tallman, Patience Hall, widow of Benjamin, Thomas Cook Sr., John and Oliver Cook, Richard Durfee, and Stephen and Mary Tallman were called to show the Portsmouth Town Council what goods they had of Benjamin Hall, deceased (Portsmouth TC 4:111). From Peter's will, below, it would appear that he was father-in-law of Benjamin Hall.

      The will of Peter Tallman, dated 4 July 1774 and proved 2 June 1783, named his son Stephen, who received the farm already in his possession; granddaughters Ruth and Sarah Hall; daughter Mary Cook, wife of Joseph; son-in-law Samuel Slocum; and in lieu of his daughter Patience, "three granddaughters." His own homestead farm he left to Jeremiah Tallman Rogers, "so-called," son of Patience Rogers (Tiverton Probate 4:346).

      Jeremiah Tallman Rogers of Tiverton, an infant under 21 years, yeoman, by Patience Rogers, spinster, his mother and guardian, sued Stephen Tallman (Jr.) for possession of the farm and dwelling left to him by the will of Stephen Tallman (Sr.) (Newport Court Files, November term 1783, No. 193). "

      Peter Tallman's Last Will and Testament, dated July 4, 1774:
