Josiah had just married in plural marriage Christiantha Nielson who at nineteen had just given birth to her first baby, Riley Howe Call on 23 Sept 1858. Anson settled all his brother's debts and left adequate money to support the two wives and their children for a few months while he made other arrangements. Henrietta within a year or so had moved to Bountiful and Anson set her up on her own ranch and eventually marrying her to stop rumors and to make sure the children had adequate support.
