Family Bible of Daniel and Hannah (Clayton) Tallman of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania

Family Bible of Daniel and Hannah (Clayton) Tallman of Lycoming, Pennsylvania, which, according to the note below on the first end paper, was purchased in 1816 from James ?.

The Bible is approximately 11" x 9" x 4"; one of its covers has detached but is present.  It was printed in 1813 for Johnson and Warner, 147 Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In addition to three completed Family Record pages [out of four total], the Bible contains a sheet, approximately 17" x 8",  published by the Muncy Luminary showing returns from the 1872 elections in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania.  

There's handwriting on the reverse, including the death date of M. Tallman on October 12, 1872 [Matthew Tallman, whose death date is shown on the Deaths page below], shown farther below.  The side of the sheet with the returns will be discussed in a future post.

Sadly, the Marriages page is unmarked.

Daniel Tallman was born February the 24th in the year 1792
Hannah Tallman was born April 14 in the year 1793
Jeremiah Tallman was born November the [20 ?] in the year 1816
Hannah Ann Tallman was born October the 19 in the year 1818
Matthew Tallman was born September the 16 in the year 1820
Jacob Tallman was born August 17 in the year 1822
Joseph Tallman was born March 22 [?] 1825
William Tallman [twin] was born March 27 in the year 1827
Salena Tallman [twin]  was born March 27 in the year 1827
Amos Tallman was born May 12 in the year 1830
Amanda Tallman was born September 14 in the year 1834
William Tallman was born [no date given, but may be a duplicate of the entry for the William born in 1827]
Amos Tallman was born May 12 in the year 1830 [duplicate entry of one above it]

"History of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania", edited by John Franklin Meginness in 1892, mentions another daughter, Eliza, between Salena [shown in the history as Salana] and Amos.

Joseph Tallman departed this life March 15th 1826
Jacob C. Tallman departed this life April [24th, 21st, 27th ?] 1836
Hannah Ann Konkle [?] departed this life December 29th 1854 at 5 o.c. in the morning
Daniel Tallman departed this life December 29th 1864 Aged 72 years 10 months and [?] days
Matthew Tallman departed this life October 12th 1872 Aged 52 years and 26 days

Hannah Tallman departed this life March 20th A.D. 1887 Aged ninety three years eleven months and six days 

Reverse of election returns sheet, the half that shows the death date of M. Tallman, whose death date corresponds to that of Matthew Tallman, son of Daniel and Hannah (Clayton) Tallman:

From online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome!]

Daniel Tallman was born 24 February 1792 in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, son of Jeremiah and Susan (possibly Mansfield) Tallman.  Jeremiah had come to Lycoming County, Pennsylvania from New Jersey.  There was another Jeremiah Tallman in Lycoming County, about a decade younger, and the two men can be easily confused.

The Marriages page is blank, but I believe Daniel and Hannah (Clayton) Tallman were married about 1815.  Hannah was born 14 April 1793 in Jerseytown, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Jacob and Hannah (Miller) Clayton.

Daniel Tallman died at Muncy, Pennsylvania, on 29 December 1864.  Hannah (Clayton) Tallman died at Dale, Pennsylvania, on 20 March 1887.
