Found Harry Paul's father's birthplace, England, mother born PA. Have not discoverd the father's name, but expect he was in Iowa when Harry Paul was born there in 1890.

From census and other data it appears Harry was b. Aug 29, 1889 son  George Paul and Mary McDuff/McDuffee.  You may want to look at the very last URL, to see more on his individual siblings to see if you can confirm this is the correct Harry.
