The Taylor family embraced the gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1840 when Henrietta was seven years old. In 1843, they moved to Macedonia, Illinois, where she was baptized. It was a fearful time when mobs burned the houses and terrorized the people.

After the Prophet's death they moved to Council Bluffs, where they lived in a wagon. She states: "We lived on johnny-cakes and porridge for 3 weeks. After living in a temporary home in Winter Quarters for 4 years, we crossed the plains in the William Wall Company arriving in Utah in 1850. We lived under the most harsh conditions. In the spring my father was called to move to California."

On February 1, 1852, Henrietta married David Hollis Holladay in San Bernardino, California. During the seven years in California she had two sons.

When the Saints came back to Utah, they settled in Beaver, Utah, where her husband started to build a log house. Before it was completed he was called to explore the White mountains with Amasa Lyman and Company. Henrietta moved into the house, but had to hang a quilt over the front door and cloth over the window. After he returned they decided to move farther north to Santaquin, Utah, where David built a four-room adobe house.

Nine months after her last child was born, her husband had an accident to his arm which caused blood poisoning to set in, causing his death at the age of forty-two on January 12, 1874. This was a great hardship for Henrietta and her young family. Her mother was a great help, but she died the next year.

Henrietta continued to live in Santaquin, passing away there on September 27, 1902, at the age of sixty-nine.
