Birth: Feb., 1867
Rutland County
Vermont, USA
Death: Jan., 1934
Cowles
San Miguel County
New Mexico, USA

Henry D. (H.D.) Winsor was the youngest of eight children. By 1870, the Winsor family moved from Vermont to Waukasha, Wisconsin to Muscotah, Kansas, where they are listed in the Federal Census as farmers. Before 1880, H.D.'s father, and oldest brother, Martin M., left Muscotah, eventually settling in the mountains of northern New Mexico at Cowles. It is unknown why they both left their families, however, tuberculosis is a probability. High, dry mountain climates were a popular "cure".

After H.D.'s mother and father both passed away in 1887, he moved to Cowles where he purchased the homestead rights for a 160 acre homestead from his brother-in-law, Charles A. Viles. (Proved in 1898) H.D. built this homestead into a boarding house which he named Winsor's Camp. It was located at the junction of the Pecos River and Winsor Creek in the Santa Fe National Forest. This property was eventually purchased by H.D.'s nephew (son of Carrie and Charles A. Viles), George Alfred Viles and named Mountain View Ranch. It became a successful dude ranch, but was dismantled in 1976 by the National Forest Service.

H.D. married Flora Ball about 1890 by a spring on Grass Mountain, near Cowles. They had four children, one of whom, Isaac, died before he was one year old. After H.D. sold Winsor's Camp in 1911, he built a home nearby and provided "light housekeeping" cabins for summer guests. This was named Winsor Ranch. Activities included horseback riding and hiking in the Pecos Wilderness. The Winsors were well liked by their guests.
