Henrietta was born in Bells Corners, Ontario, in 1868, the youngest child of Rev. John Armnstrong Dowler and Mary Williams. Her birth date is specified in the 1901 census, referenced below.

Being daughter of a pastor, Henrietta had a number of homes during her youth. In 1871, she appears on the first census with her family in Crosby, Ontario[1]. In 1881, the family was listed in Brock, Ontario[2] then in 1891 in Elmsley South.[3]

In 1897, she married Rev. John Soper Stevenson.[4]. The marriage record states her birthplace as Bells Corners, her age and place at time of marriage as 29 and Toronto, respectively. Her brother W. A. Dowler, of Tilsonburg, was a witness.

Refer to the 1901, 1911 and 1921 censuses referenced below for details of their children and places of residence.

She lost her husband in 1935 and outlived him by more than 26 years. She passed away in Milton, Ontario in 1961, where she was interred near her husband[5]
