Birth: Nov. 2, 1872
Tallapoosa County
Alabama, USA
Death: Jun. 30, 1888
Love County
Oklahoma, USA

Henry H. Golden was born on 2 Nov 1872 in Tallapoosa Co., Alabama, the third of ten children who were born to James Marion and Frances Catherine (Hornsby) Golden. Henry spent the first ten years or so of his life growing up in Alabama. From birth records of his younger siblings it appears that the family was on the move during this time period, from Tallapoosa Co. in the 1870 US Federal Census, on west to Walker Co., then back east again to Etowah Co., and then to Morgan Co. in north central Alabama—moves presumably made in pursuit of work and livelihood, all the while the family continued growing as well, thus increasing the pressure to survive. Sometime in the early 1880s, Henry's family migrated to Wise County in north central Texas, for that is where the ninth child was born—in Alvord, Wise Co., Texas, in 1886. Henry's oldest sister, Martha "Mattie," was also married that same year to Isaac Foster Fullingim; Henry was about fourteen years old by that time.

Unfortunately, Henry would never grow to adulthood for he died at age fifteen and a half on June 30, 1888. The circumstances surrounding young Henry's death are not known at this time; perhaps a long-ago archived newspaper account in Indian Territory will reveal those details sometime in the days ahead. Whether he was residing with his oldest sister, Mattie (Golden) Fullingim, and her young family at the time near Marietta, I.T., or whether he was with his parents when they were migrating north into Indian Territory, settling near Ada, is also a detail that remains a mystery. The fact that Mattie was buried next to her brother when she met her untimely death almost nine years later in 1897 suggests that Henry was definitely NOT forgotten by his family.

Just completed the writing of the biographical sketch for young Henry—a life with such promise and gone so soon. Of certainty, his parents felt deeply the sting of their oldest son's passing! Rest in Peace.
