Henry was my great grandfather, through his son James Porter White.

Henry and Lucinda were married 6 Mar 1861, in Holt, Missouri.They moved to Black Hawk, Gilpen, Colorado,
in 1863, traveling by wagon and a team of oxen.

They lived in Pueblo from about 1867-1883. They then moved to Saguache County, living in Kerber Creek, Villa Grove, and Parksville.

Henry lost part of his arm and hand in an accident while making roof shingles. It is said due to that accident, his hair and beard turned completely white.

Henry became a member of Lodge#58, affiliated with the Olive Branch, Lodge #32, A.F.M., Saguache, Colorado, 25 Feb 1893. He was a 32 degree Mason. He was very proud of this membership.

Henry was mentioned in the diary of Rev. William Worthington - "Mr. White", from Salida, spent the night and shared flapjacks with him the next morning. Book:In The Sunny San Luis Valley Reminiscences of 1885. page 115. Obtained from Saguache County Museum.

Henry and his family had a good reputation as loving, hardworking, and kind neighbors.
