      From the book, "Talman/Tallman Families", by Herbert S. Ackerman, pg.118:

      "Nov. 28, 1787. Proved Jan. 11, 1788. Will of Oliver Tallman of Shrewsbury, New Jersey Mentions son Daniel, daughter Jemime. Brother Jeans. To Daniel, Jemime, Molly, Hannah, William. Extr. George Howland declined. Son William acted as admin. Inventory 84-17-6."

      According to James Stillwell, the Tallmans of New Jersey were possessed of a "fiery character" for 6 generations!

      Greater Tallman Family News page 3 Autumn Issue No. 23

      "Resided at Long Branch, Monmouth Co., New Jersey prior to the Revolution. The estate was forfeited by being a Royalist. Fought for the British side during the Battle of Monmouth, while his son, William fought under Washington. After the war his land at Tinton Falls, New Jersey was confiscated and sold. With his 2nd son, Peter and Daniel, moved to the North Shore of Lake Ontario near St. Catherine's (Welland Co.), where lands were ceded to him for his loyalty to the Crown. Oliver Returned to New Jersey & died at Shrewsbury."

      Yes, I think we are definately talking about the same Tallman line. I'm getting a lot of responses to my post! I'm going to try to transcribe the notes I have and post them. My aunt recently pulled boxes out of their basement in New Jersey to try to save them from flooding. She has made me copies of 3 things concerning the Tallmans so far. She also transcribed the Bible of William Mount Tallman since it was too fragile to copy. She has more, but I'm not sure what.

      Here's what I have:

      1. A handwritten sheet, with the following: (The handwriting appears to be my grandmother's, who died in 1956. I'm not sure where she got the info)
      Oliver Tallman (G.G.G. Grandfather)
      Elizabeth Jeffery (G.G.G. Grandmother)
      William Tallman (G.G. Grandfather)
      Sarah Mount (G.G.Grandmother)
      William Tallman, Jr. (G. Grandfather)
      Elizabeth Hardenbrook (G. Grandmother)
      William Mount Tallman (Grandfather)
      Mary A. M. Spader (Grandmother)
      Irene A. Mountain nee Tallman (Mother)
      Frederick Mountain (Father)
      This piece of paper is where I got the name of Elizabeth Jeffery. I've recently heard from another descendant of Oliver Tallman, through his son Daniel. She also mentions Elizabeth Jeffrey as the wife of Oliver. She thinks she died in 1782 in Monmouth County and never went to Canada with Oliver. I haven't heard back from her concerning her source.

      2. A handwritten copy of a Family Bible, which would appear to have originally belonged to William Tallman, Jr. and Elizabeth Boyce Hardenbrook. Here are just a few things from it:

      Wm Tallman, Jr. the son of Wm and Sarah Tallman and Elizabeth Boyce Hardenbrook the daughter of Isaac and Willimpee Hardenbrook
      11th day of April 1816

      Sarah the Mother of William Tallman Died at her Sons Ellis Tallman August 1857

      William Tallman son of William and Sarah Tallman born at Long Branch
      June 28th 1794

      Elizabeth B. Hardenbrook Daughter of Isaac and Williampee Hardenbrook
      Jan 11th 1792

      3. Handwritten notes of William Mount Tallman, written on the back of a December, 1897 desk calendar. At some point, he was gathering information for the Stillwell book, "Historical and Genealogical Miscellany....". We're not sure why he was writing these notes. Here's a few items:
      Wm Tallman Grand Father
      Born 1758 Died Mch 17th 1833
      Sarah Mount Grand Mother
      Born 1764 Died Aug 11th 1857
      Their children James Peter + Sarah No Issue
      Joseph Born April 10 1785 died Sep 20/1819
      Rebecca Lawson Born Nov 24/1788 Died Jan 24/1884
      Wm Tallman Jr. born June 28/1794 Died Jany 24/1849
      Elizabeth Hardenbrook born Jany 11/1792 died Sept 8/82 } 90 yrs 8 mo 3 D

      This same information is repeated on another page, with the age for Sarah Mount at her death being "age 93 yrs., 3 mo., 11 days" I've seen her age at death published in the Monmouth County Historical Association as "93, 3, 6". These notes have a lot of names of dates of relatives, but from William/Sarah forward.
