Charles G. Olbon and Mary Forrester

Charles G.Olbon married Mary Forrester on 14 July 1852 in Elbert County. He was born in Sweden and was a tailor. He
made uniforms for the Confederacy and was killed in the Battle of Atlanta. On the 1870 census, their five children are living with different families. Did Mary Forrester Olbon die before 1870? When did Charles Olbon come from Sweden? As a side note, I have found a Charles Olbon who was a tailor in an 1835 New York City directory. Also a Charles Olbon and William Olbon fought for the Union in New Jersey units. Is there any connections between the Charles Olbon in Elberton and the Olbons in New Jersey?
I am descended from their daughter Susan Elizabeth "Lizzie" who married Thomas J. Teasley on 16 April 1874 in Hart County.
