Genett Calder was born April 20, 1861, at Bountiful, Davis, Utah to Robert and Flora Ann Simmons Calder. On May 1, 1872, the family moved to Randolph, Rich, Utah. Genett and her sister Polly walked all the way and drive the cows. In May, 1979, they moved to Garden City, Utah.

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. Gennett was a very good cook and always had goodies to serve. She was especially good to the sick and the elderly.
