There are records of an Andrew J. Tallman of the 17th NY Infantry passing on April 10, 1871, but they have him buried in Long Bridge, CT.  

He is on Richard Lander'a list and on page 16 of the North Castle Town Clerk's list, (along with his brother. George, who enlisted the same day). Not in the 1860 census, nor in 1890 Veterans' Census or 1861-65.  The roster of the 17th Infantry Regiment by the New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs, Unit History Project does not have a Andrew Jackson Tallman, only his brother George.
