After joining the Mormon Church, Henry Booth, his wife Susanah and their children moved to Nauvoo, Illinois. During the construction of the Nauvoo Temple, Henry and his two oldest boys worked on the building every tenth day instead of paying tithing. The family attended the first meeting held at the temple.
Following the death of Prophet Joseph Smith, the Boothes made preparations to leave Nauvoo. Henry and his sons chopped timber through the winter so they could purchase a wagon. They started West with some bread, two sacks of parched corn, a cow and two yearling steers.
During the journey, the Boothe family ran out of provisions except for a few beans, so Henry left his wife and younger children in a dugout near Winter Quarters while he and the older boys sought work elsewhere. The family was eventually united, and they settled in North String in Box Elder County. Because of an Indian scare, Henry, Susanah and their children moved into the Box Elder Fort in Brigham City where they lived for awhile.
In 1856, The Boothe family relocated to California and lived in the San Jose and later Santa Rosa areas. Henry, his wife, and youngest son returned to Brigham City to live in 1863. Henry and Susanah had seven children.
Born in Edgcorn, North Carolina, on Sept. 26, 1802
Died in Brigham City, Utah, on April 7, 1889.
