Peter Tallman of Spring Valley: Civil War Veteran
In 1980, a pew was dedicated in memory of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Tallman at the United Church of Spring Valley. At the time the family provided a brief biography of Peter, which is the basis for much of the information in this article. We thank Alice Sherwood Gainer, the Tallmans' great-granddaughter, for pro­viding the photographs and for clarifying details.
