About Nathan Cram Tenney

Nathan Cram Tenney was born to Meshach Tenney and Phoebe Cram. Nathan's parents divorced, and Nathan lived with his mother and, later, his step-father, John Gates.

Nathan was a poygamist and married three times:

(1) Olive Strong March 18, 1841 in Berreman, Jo Davies County, Illinois.

Nathan and Olive had ten children together; only four of whom lived past childhood.

(2) Grace Tippett Jose March 18, 1859 in John D. Lee's home in southern Utah. This was a polygamous marriage, as Nathan was still married to Olive. Nathan and Grace divorced about 1869.

Nathan and Grace had one child together:

William Arthur Tenney (1862 - 1918)

(3) Nancy Beaufort Morris October 10, 1863 in Salt Lake City, Utah. This was a polygamous marriage, as Nathan was still married to both Olive and Grace.

Nathan and Nancy had one child together:

Ernest Talbot Tenney (1865 - 1865)

Nathan was living in St. Johns, Arizona at the time of his death. On June 24, 1882, there was a St. John's Day celebration in town. A fight broke out between some Mexican youths and some brothers named "Greer"; it stemmed from an earlier feud they were having. The argument turned into a gunfight, and Nathan got caught in the crossfire. He was shot in the head, and died instantly.
