Could be the parents were married in Prussia/Germany and may be difficult to trace further back.
Haven't found an obituary for William Ohms  :-\  Hopefully someone else might.

1870 census Pleasant, Winneshiek, Iowa.

William Ohm   50
Wilhelmina Ohm 55
August Ohm   34 born Prussia.
Albert Ohm   20 born Prussia.
Amelia Ohm   14 born Canada West.

1880 census Pleasant, Winneshiek, Iowa.

Albert Ohm   29 born Prussia.
Magie Ohm   24
Haldha Ohm   5
Rudulf Ohm   3
Loury Ohm   1
William Ohm   62

1900/1910 census give Albert's birth Canada - 1920 Germany.

You probably have a copy of the obit - just wondered if it might mention the parents.
