Samuel Osborne Henrie and Ellen Clark 3G grandparents

Excerpt from a book entitled, Utah since Statehood, Historical and Biographical:

"S. O. Henrie, residing in Panguitch, was for a long period actively engaged in ranching and stock raising but is now practically retired, having leased his property. He is one of Utah's native sons, his birth having occurred at Bountiful in 1860, his parents being James and Rhoana (Hatch) Henrie, who crossed the plains with ox teams in an early day and endured all of the hardships and privations that fell to the lot of the early settlers of Utah. The father died in 1917 at the advanced age of eighty-eight years. He was a conscientious church worker and did everything in his power to promote the work of the church and extend its influence. He became one of the first settlers of Panguitch, where he took up his abode in 1871. The mother is still living and has now reached the age of eighty-seven years.

S. O. Henrie acquired a public school education and was but eleven years of age when he accompanied his parents on their removal to Panguitch. In early life he engaged in herding sheep, also freighted across the desert and did various other kinds of work incident to the settlement of the frontier. He carefully saved his earnings until his industry and economy had brought him sufficient capital to enable him to purchase a flock of sheep of his own and from that time he prospered in his undertakings. As the years passed he acquired about three hundred acres of land and also successfully conducted extensive stock raising interests. He ha snow leased both his stock and his land and has retired from active business. He still remains a stockholder in the State Bank of Garfield, in the Panguitch Cooperative Company and the Southern Utah Equitable Association and is also the principal owner of a large garage.

At Panguitch, in 1878, Mr. Henrie was married to Miss Nellie Clark, who died in 1890. She was the mother of five children, four of whom are yet living, namely: Nellie D., who was born January 30, 1879, and married James Worthen, by whom she has five children: Rhoana, born September 1, 1880, who married William Carter and has eight children; Amanda, who was born March 29, 1882, and married Charles Lynn; and Myra, born April 18, 1884, who married Hyrum Evans, by whom she has seven children {one of whom was my great grandmother Velma Evans Huntington}. In 1894 Mr. Henrie wedded Hattie L. Dofelmler and their children are as follows: Bethana, who was born May 20, 1899, and married Glen Adams, by whom she has one child; Ellen who was born June 10, 1901; Osborne, born February 23, 1904; Erma, June 10, 1906; Theresa, December 16, 1908; Hattie, May 25, 1912; Unis, May 18, 1915; and Letha, September 27, 1917.

Mr. Henrie belongs to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and his political views are in accord with the principles of the Republican party. He has led and active and useful life, and his enterprises and diligence have made him one of the men of affluence in Garfield county."
