Obituary of Romancy Miller Tallman

Mrs. Romancy Tallman, known to her many intimate friends as Grandma Tallman, was born at Millersport, Ohio, April 10, 1819, and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Eliza Lieberknecht, January 31, 1911, at the ripe old age of 91 years, 9 months and 21 days. She was united in marriage to Benjamin B. Tallman October 25, 1834, whose decease occurred October 25, 1881. To this union were born thirteen children, ten of whom lived to manhood and womanhood, three dying in infancy. The family moved to Iowa, in 1848.
She was converted at the age of 22, and lived as a devout Christian the remainder of her life. She was always kind and affectionate to her children and always endeavered to make life’s path smoother for weary feet.
She leaves to mourn her departure six children, four sons and two daughters: Miller Tallman, Griff Tallman, Nathaniel Tallman, Wm. Tallman, Amy E. Garnant, and Eliza E. Lieberknecht: she also leaves fourteen grandchildren and twenty-five greatgrandchildren.
The funeral services were held Thursday at the Methodist church, conducted by Rev. Carter, and a large number of friends were in attendance to witness the last sad rites. Interment was made in the Rippey cememtery. Their many friends join in extending sympathy to the bereft relatives in their time of sorrow.
