Henry Martin Tanner was born 11 June 1852 at San Bernardino, California. He lived in San Bernardino until six years of age -- then lived in Beaver, Utah for 18 years, and during this time he worked on the farm, looked after the stock and freighted with teams. He accompanied his father to California on some of his freighting trips.

Having been called by James S. Brown to pioneer Arizona, he and his wife left Beaver 21 February 1877 with one wagon, five horses and three cows. The group arrived in Joseph City about May 1, and after eating dinner with Bushman's, the Hunts and Tanners started on to New Mexico where they had decided to locate. Sunset and Joseph City did not look good to them. However, after traveling up the Rio Puerco and seeing the sand blowing across the road, the Tanners decided that Joseph City was at least preferable to this.
In the spring of 1888 Henry was called to England to fill a mission, but on account of his health was released in about ten months. In his declining years, he received great satisfaction by being with his children who all greatly loved and respected him. He and his two wives had seventeen children, eleven by Eliza and six by Emma, and all except three grew to maturity.
