52 Ancestors: #15 Albert Parker (1815-1902) Ohio to Iowa

Albert Bryan, son of Morrison Bryan and Rhoda Johnson, was born on 29 July 1815 in Greene County, Ohio.  He married Ann Parker on 12 November 1850 in Jefferson County, Iowa.  In 1847 Albert was granted a land patent in Fairfield, Mahaska County, Iowa.  Albert worked as a farmer and a master carpenter.  He spent the rest of his live in Poweshiek County, Iowa.

Albert and Ann had five children.  I was able to follow four of the five children, I have been unable to determine what happened to Sarah Emily Bryan who was born in 1855 and was listed in the 1860 census. So, the children of Albert and Ann were

Oliver Bryan (1851-1944) Iowa to California [married Mary Emma Doyle]

William Morrison Bryan (1853-1938) Iowa to California [married Belinda N. Alexander]

Sarah Emily Bryan (1855-   ) Iowa

Alice Edna Bryan (1859-1925) Iowa to South Dakota [married Edward Alonzo Stone]

Joseph Theodore Bryan (1865-1950) Iowa to California [married Mary Jane Good]

I believe that Albert is buried in the I.O.O. F. Cemetery in Montezuma, Poweshiek County, Iowa.  I have been able to acquire a death certificate.  Also, I am looking for information about a grave marker in order to get a photo of it.
