Amos Tenney, bom in Littleton, Mass., 23 Nov., 1761, son of Samuel and Sarah (Tyler) ; married 7 Jan., 1783, Mary Chapin of Acton, Mass., who was bom 25 Oct., 1762, and died in Hancock, N. H., 12 Mch^ 1829. They resided at Acton, Mass.; removed in 1786 to Hancock, N. H.
From a letter written by him at North Charlestown, 28 Apr., 1835 : " I have lived in Hancock about forty-six years. My wife died 12 Mch., 1829 ; she left one daughter, unmarried, who kept my house until 9 Sept., 1830, at which time she married and I quit keeping house, and hired my board. I enjoyed myself very well. I am neither poor nor rich, but I have enough for this world ; and I think, as I have for many years, that the religion of Jesus is the one thing needful; and may we all so live as to meet in the bright realms of glory." He died 1 Apr., 1848, "realizing in himself that the path of the just is as the shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day."
Amos Tenney lived to see fifty-five grandchildren, thirty-one of whom were married and had forty-one children.
