Henry Parker wife Mary, daughters Hellen and Sophie are in louth in 1841 on the census. Some time after that they come to the US. I don't know what happen to Mary but Henry is listed as widower in 1850 Lee Co IA. His daughter Sophie is with him. but I find a death of an Ellen Parker in 1849 in Lee Co. Possible this is Hellen. They lived for years next to and then with the Parks family in Montrose. They don't appear to be family though so why did Henry came to Montrose are there other Parkers from Louth here? Sophia married Samuel Gobble/Goble son of William Benjamin Gobble of Lee Co.
