UPDATE ON TWO OF THE 3 LUCYs.
I am pretty sure that Lucy Elizabeth Tenney who is buried in Indian Trail Cemetery, Ray, Michigan is the mother of Lucy Tenney who married David Harlan Barrows in Armada in 1870. I have searched and have found no documents that prove it, however. Here is the original information I had on her, and below that is new information.
1. LUCY Elizabeth ____________ TENNEY
died Jan. 26, 1851, buried Indian Trail Cemetery, Ray Township, Macomb Co., Michigan
“Tenney, LUCY ELIZABETH died Jan 26, 1851” ++++ (1851 is wrong death year)
”WIFE OF Arthur M. _22 Y”
She did not die in 1851. I visited the cemetery and saw the recently cleaned headstone and it had her death year as 1854.
++ LUCY ELIZABETH STONE
was born on 9-2-1831 in Rush, Monroe Co., NY to David & Lucy (Welton) Stone, and their other children were Sarah, Levi and Maia, all born in Rush, NY. This David and daughter Sarah are in the 1860 Ray census. In the 1870 census David Stone is living with his daughter Sarah Hamilton and her family in Lapeer, Michigan. Baby Lucy E. Tenney probably grew up to marry David Harland Barrows of Ray/Armada on 12-8-1870. “People & Places of Macomb County” on pg 453 has “Lucy E Tenny, a granddaughter of David Stone, one of the early settlers of Macomb County.”
Most likely Lucy Elizabeth Stone (1831 – 1854) married an Arthur M. Tenney,gave birth to a daughter named Lucy E. Tenney In Michigan in October 1852 and died as Lucy E. Tenney on January 26, 1854 and was buried in Indian Trails Cemetery, Ray, Michigan.
++++ I visited the gravesite in Sept. 2004, and saw that the recently cleaned headstone had Lucy’s death date as 1854, not 1851 as published. ( MB)
1854 Jan 26 LUCY ELIZABETH ( STONE ?) TENNEY DIED.
There is a Lucy E. Tenney buried at INDIAN TRAILS CEMETERY in Ray, Mich. Her headstone WAS misread AND PRINTED AS 1851 instead of 1854 in the "Cemeteries of Macomb County, Mich, vol 2 HEADSTONES 1991" and on the Macomb County website.
Tenney is probably her married name as her marker says wife of Arthur M. Tenney
2 *LUCY R. TENNEY. She is probably related to the other two, and are both probably nieces of Mary Corbin Sibley, as they were living together in 1870. Joanna Corbin Tenney did not have a son by the name of Arthur as far as I know.
born 1832 New York

Mary Corbin was the wife of Alvah Sibley and the sister of Joanna Corbin
* Lucy R. Tenney MIGHT be the daughter of Joanna Corbin, wife of ________ Tenny, or someone by the name of Lucy, unknown last name, that married another mister Tenney.
Joanna Corbin Tenny is the mother of Mary above, Melvina, Mervin, Zenas and Adaline, born 10-9-1830 in Monroe County, New York and Lucy. I have not found Joanna to have a son named Arthur.
3. **LUCY E. TENNEY born 1851 MICHIGAN
married 1870 Dec 8 to David Harlan BARROWS
died 1915 April, buried in Willow Grove Cem., Richmond, Macomb Co., Michigan
1860 David Stone and daughter Sarah are living in the town of RAY, Macomb County with the same dwelling number as Orasmus Lathrop. I have not found how Orasmus is related to our Lathrops. Lucy was not listed with them.
1870 18 year old Lucy E. Tenney was living with Sibley/Dunham/ Tenney/ Corbin line relatives in Armada Township.

Mary Corbin Sibley is the wife of ALVA Sibley.
*Mary is AUNT to DELOS DUNHAM and MARCIA DUNHAM thru her sister Zerviah Corbin Dunham. Mary is the SISTER of JOANNA CORBIN TENNY who IS PROBABLY THE MOTHER OF LUCY R. TENNEY (born 1832). I do not know for certain how Lucy E. Tenney (born 1852) is related to Mary Sibley, but I am following up on all Tenny/Tenney people in the Armada area to find the husband of Joanna Corbin Tenny, who I believe are the parents of Adaline Tenney, wife of Dr. Samuel Lathrop. Adaline Tenny Lathop used “Arthur” as the middle name for her first son.

New Information 9-20-04 notes for Arthur, Lucy Stone & Lucy Tenney Barrows
I have almost no information on Arthur M. TennEy. He is important because he might be a clue to Adaline Tenny’s family. He is probably the father of Lucy E. Tenney who married David Harlan Barrows. He is probably the husband of the Lucy Elizabeth Tenney who is buried in Ray, Macomb Co., Michigan. She died Jan 26, 1854 and her marker says “W/O Arthur M. _ 22 Y "

1850 Not in census INDEX, I looked thru SOME Ray census pages, but not all, and could not find him.
1860 not in Michigan Index. Arthur Tenney under 6 last name spellings, not in any state using Heritage Quest Index.

(Unless the census was wrong , this Arthur was born abt 1834 (Lucy Stone Tenney was born in Sept.1831) and would have been abt 18 in October 1852 when Lucy E. Tenny (Barrows) was born, and about 19 or 20 when Lucy Elizabeth Stone Tenney died in January 1854.
Lucy was 22 years, 4 months and 24 days old when she died.
