John ", 25, m, Farmer, 600, Germany
(Indexed as Peter Price)

If the birthplaces are correct on this census, they came to Iowa between Christina (5) and Eliza (1)... so between 1845 and 1849. And you can see there is no twin brother for Henry. Also it looks like John and Fritz are probably brothers to Peter and may have come at the same time

Saturday the will of the late Peter Pries was filed for probate. To his wife Anna Pries, he gives $500 and all the household furniture. To each of his four daughters he gives $500; to his son Henry, $500; to his son Adolph, $200; to his grad daughter, Meta, the daughter of Adolph $300. His wife is appointed executrix without Bond.
(Spelling of "grad daughter" as written in article)

Apparently the only other son besides Henry surviving his father is Adolph Pries

He died in 1900 and is buried in Davenport Iowa
