Hello Marsha: I searched the entire Kalamazoo County death records including the 5 Kalamzoo City Wards for 1894 with no luck. I did find Livius living at 1410 Forbes st. with Frances A. Tenny a Phys. & George C. Tenny. There were also a Newell S. and Wilbur E. Tenny living at another address., from Business Directory for Kalamazoo County, 1893 at Western Michigan University Archives and Regional History Collections.
You may want to try a request for a death record through the Michigan Department of Health.
You may also want to join the local Kalamazoo valley Genealogical Society where there are provisions for some limited free look-up services.
