Albert's parents, John and Julia lived in Canada for eight years to avoid the Civil War. John's mother died when he was ten years old and he was sent to live with his grandfather, George. In 1868 he moved to Homestead, Iowa and in 1871 to Iowa City, Iowa. In 1877 he packed up his family, having two sons then, and went by covered wagon to Wichita, Kansas to homestead. They settled in Wellington, Kansas but by 1879 John decided he wasn't cut out to be a farmer and missed the people coming into the blacksmith shop in Iowa. That same year they sold their land and took the train back to North Liberty, Iowa where they spent the rest of their lives. It is not known how or when Albert made it to Michigan or why he was not buried there, but returned to Iowa. Many of his descendents live in Michigan to this day.
