  • Notes 
    • Colonel Tallman was in command in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. He was the builder of two frigates and ninety-three sails of other vessels, one of which, the Ann, was 1000 tons, and another, the Hope, built for the Brown-Ives firm, which were the first vessels that sailed from Rhode Island to the East Indies. His gravestone at Grace Church cemetery, Providence, reads: "In memory of Colonel Benjamin Tallman, shipwright and a Revolutionary officer, a patriot and an honest man."
