I am guessing that this area was named after the Lewis H. Tallmadge Family
But there was “Talmage” place names in Nebraska and Kansas where the early settlers came from
Those places might be named after this family as well. (see First Postmaster's sister's Married Name below)

My Sister in Law's ancestor, John B. Kelley family, settled near Talmage from the US. in 1908
Kelley ancestors buried in the Fillmore Cemetery
