Henry crossed the ocean on the ship Buena Vista in 1849 and arrived in Utah with his family by 1852. The roster only lists Samuel, as head of household, but it also indicates that his traveling group consisted of eight people, which accounts for the presence of his wife and children.
Several years later, he crossed the plains again, this time working as a teamster for the 1866 Thompson out-and-back company.
