Anna Maria Footner (Bartlett) Mott Henry (b. 1861 - d, 1938), was born on December 31, 1861 in Christchurch, England. She died in Fort Worth, Texas on November 11, 1938 and is buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Prescott. She was the daughter of Alfred James and Mary Anne Footner Bartlett. In 1879 or 1880, she married Robert Inneo Mott, a poet, in Christchurch. They came to California where he died less than a year after their marriage. In 1893 in Redlands, California, she married George Samuel Henry, a contractor. The Henrys moved to Arizona in 1893 and had four children: Maude Footner Henry Hopkins (b. 1894? - d. 1990), Neill Henry, a baby (named for Buckey O'Neill) who died as an infant, Ola Gertrude Henry Pitchford (b. 1899? - d. 1937) and Amelia Henry Oldershaw (1902). A dressmaker and milliner by trade, Anna was widowed in 1904 and supported herself and her three children by many forms of employment. A biography on her is in the Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden book.

This tintype shows Anna Maria in bathing costume on a Pacific Coast beach; she is in white. The identities of the others are unknown.
