    All of the foregoing was taken from the Tallman family plot in Section BB.

    Dr. Stillwell discusses the Tallman Burying Ground on Pumpkin Point, Shrewsbury, NJ as follows:

      In this plot is interred the founder of the Tallman family in this locality. He was the son of Dr. James Tallman, of Rhode Island, and was born, according to the Rhode Island records, June 30, 1702, which will be seen at variance with the date on his tombstone. [See Dr. Stephen, above]

      During the summer of 1903, Mr. George Douglass Tallman, acquainting few or none of Dr. Stephen Tallman's descendants, removed the tombstones, and such remains as could be found in this lot to Fairview Cemetery, Middletown, NJ. The natural obliteration of the bodies and the utter impossibility to locate those buried without stones, as for instance the wife and sons of Dr. Tallman, made such removal a farce. Surely more of the family was left behind than taken, and it is another instance of interference, lacking as much in sentiment as justice

    He notes the following burials at the family burying ground in addition to those listed above:

    • Tallman, James ~ died Apr 5, 1827, in the 83rd year of his age
    • Tallman, Stephen S. (son of George D. and Ann F. Tallman) ~ died Sep 8, 1843, aged 1 year, 9 months, 10 days

    Fairview Records indicate the following members of the Tallman family are interred there though we did not find their headstones:

    • Plot BB-953 (owned by George D. Tallman)
      • Tallman, Thomas S. ~ died Jan 12, 1922, aged 71 years

    • Plot BB-1313 (owned by Paul B. Tallman)
      • Tallman, Stephen S. II ~ died Mar 17, 1925, aged 78 years
