He sailed to America in 1850 on the ship Argo.
Henry initially traveled to the Valley in 1850 with his brother, Phillip. They traveled with an organized company until around Casper, Wyoming, at which point they set off on their own with one other unnamed individual. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they started off with. His travel to Utah at this time is mentioned in his obituary as well as his brother's reminiscence published in the Juvenile Instructor.
He was rebaptized in Salt Lake City on 20 October 1850.
