This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Henry Walton worked for the lithography firm of Stone & Clark in Ithaca, New York beginning in 1936. He is known primarily for his lithographs of upstate New York towns made between 1836 and 1850. Walton was also a portrait and miniature painter most often working in watercolor.

In 1849 he joined the Gold Rush to California.

There is some discrepancy on Walton's birth and death dates. Falk's "Who Was Who in American Art" has the dates 1804-1865 though it does note many different possible dates and sources. According to Falk, Walton left California and settled in Michigan in 1857. Hughes' "Artist's in California" has the dates 1821-1873 and states that Walton resided in San Francisco until his death.

Source: Hughes, "Artist's in California1786-1940" and Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art 1564-1975"
