Rosa Marie Dryer Albaugh

I am trying to find Rosa Marie Dryer's parents. Rosa was my ggrandmother, born 10-17-1885 in Illinois died 1975 in Cedar Co. Iowa. She was married to Harry Herman "Hal" Albaugh 10-20-1903 in Cedar Co. Iowa. When my grandmother Selma died I found a paper that she had wrote which stated this:
Rosa Marie (Rose) Albaugh
"Anna's mother and father"

"Gustav A. Gus Dryer (Dreier German Spelling) born Oct. 9,1872 In Bloomiington, Ill.
Gustav's parents Frederick Wm Dryer and Anna Bartz Dryer came to America from Provence of Germany in 1868 or about."

"Gustava Marie Fiebig Dryer born in Twanda poss Towanda, Ill Nov. 22,1873. Stavia's parents Herman Fiebig - Germany Minnie Ventz Fiebig came from Germany when she was about 18 yrs. They met in Bloomington Ill and married in Jan. 1873."

"Gus and Stavia met in Bloomington and married Oct. 24,1893"

Everyone in the family just assumed Gus and Stavia were Rosa's parents until we really looked at the dates and went duh. I have searched for Gustav and Gustava and found that they had a daughter Anna b. Jan 1897. So think it may be possible that Rosa was a sister of Gustav.

I have found Gus and Stavia in Colorada 1920 Census and know they were in Iowa for a time because their daughter Clara (14) is listed as born there. Last Child William (9)was born in Nebraska. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Any info appreciated.
Thank you,
