It was previously believed that Henry traveled with his parents as a member of the David Wood company. However, a review of the primary sources indicate otherwise. There were a total of 10 people in Isaac Busenbark's party. Henry had recently married Martha Jane Epperson. They had a child born in Iowa in 1853. The first evidence to place Henry in Utah is his rebaptism on 15 April 1854.
The primary source evidence suggests that Henry and his family reached Utah sometime between 1853 and 1854.
