Samuel Tenney, son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Atwood) of

Great Diamond Island, in Casco Bay, married Deborah Wilbur who was born 16 Aug., 1765. They resided at East Raymond, Me., until after the birth of the children, when they removed to Phillips, Me., and occupied a farm which is now used as a pasture and known as the Tenney lot. The cellar to their house may still be seen in said lot. The family left the town and located not far distant, as they frequently visited the place.

Adjoining the farm in Phillips lived one Thomas Wilbur, who married Deborah Tenney, who may have been a sister to Samuel Tenney. Mr. Tenney died 28 June, 1841. [1] Children:
