Son of Lyman F. and Polly Maxon Tallman and brother of John M. Tallman. "Killed by Indians May 8, 1870" inscribed on tombstone. Research shows he died near the East Bijou Creek, about nine miles east of Kiowa in what is now Elbert County, Colorado. He had gone to pick up a mule he purchased; on the return trip his mule was too slow to outrun the indians at the time and he was killed and scalped. Tallman was a Civil War veteran. At age 18 he enlisted as a private in Company D of the 11th Michigan Cavalry Regiment on October 7, 1863, was wounded and became a prisoner of war at Saltville, Virginia on October 2, 1864, was returned to his regiment on June 12, 1865 and was subsequently discharged on July 12, 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee. His military record is annotated "distinguished service."
