Edward GREENING - b 1828 - Peter Tavy, Devon

I have a string of references that I believe relate to this person, but I am missing crucial census records for 1861 and 1871 to consolidate my findings.

Edward Dobson Grinon was baptised on 5 Oct 1828 at Peter Tavy.

The names Edward Greenham and Amy Botterell appear on the same page Sep Q 1851 Tavistock.

Merchant Seamen Service Records - Edward Greening, b 1829, Devonshire 1853-57.

Passenger list - "Arkwright"- Liverpool - New York - March 1864. Edward Grenning,34, England in group of 5. I am reasonably confident that I have identified the other 4 as nephews of Edward of Peter Tavy.

U S Census 1870 - Edward Greening, 39, shoemaker, living Brooklyn, New York.

1881 - Edward Greening, 52, born Peter Tavy, boot and shoemaker,
" Anny" Greening, 57, born Lamerton.
Living East Stonehouse, Plymouth.

Death - Edward Greening, Jun Q 1889, East Stonehouse, aged 60.

Census entry for 1861 could confirm marriage, and if Amy alone in 1871, could confirm migration. Not sure what Merchant Seaman's records might tell me.

Can anyone see what I am missing?
