Son of Henson Walker III and Caroline Elizabeth Farnsworth

Henson was married to Anna Euzella Driggs (1881-1904)

Henson Stephen Walker, son of Henson Walker III and Caroline E. Farnsworth, was born Sept 13, 1882 in Tuba City, Arizona, while his parents are doing missionary work there among the Indians. He was blessed and given a name by his grandfather, Stephen Martindale Farnsworth.

This mission extended over a period of eighteen years, throughout this southwestern area. Henson was about twelve years old when the family returned to Pleasant Grove, Utah, their hometown. He went to the elementary schools and attended Sunday School and Primary, and grew up with his many childhood friends there.

Like other boys he worked at odd jobs when possible. He helped his father on the farm and worked with horses a great deal. When he was about twenty years of age he found employmnet at Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City as a hostler and coachman for the Army officers there. It was while he was thus employed by the Government that he contracted typhoid fever and died at Fort Douglas Aug 27, 1904 at the age of Twenty-one and was buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Pleasant Grove, Utah.
