Henry Howland Cook, son of Ann Eliza Howland and Phineus Wolcott Cook, was born February 28, 1859 at Goshen, Utah. In the fall of 1863, he with his family, moved to Bear Lake, settling first at Paris, Idaho, later at Swan Creek. He attended school at St. Charles, Idaho. His father owned a grist mill, saw mill, carding mill and blacksmith shop. He always had plenty to do.

On June 3, 1880, Gennett and Henry were married in the Endowment House at Salt Lake City, Utah. Their first home was in Garden City. They leased land and farmed and also helped Henry's father with the mills.

In July, 1892, they moved to Woodruff, Rich, Utah where Henry and his brothers went into the merchantile business. Soon after they moved to Woodruff their oldest son, William who had diptheria, died. They had to burn everything; they moved in the back room of the store and then later on they bought the John Smith home.

They were the parents of ten children; Henry William, Effa Gennett, Ann Aurellia, Rowena, Lorin Calder, Thomas Calder, Phoebe Irene, Irwin Calder, Veraun Calder and Amanda Loveda.

Henry and Gennett were outstanding people. Their home was always open to everyone and they had a piano and organ.
