Hello Joe,

I have no connection to this family. Saw your query and did some searching. This is what I have found:

Source Citation: Year: 1920;Census Place: Mabton, Yakima, Washington; Roll: T625_1945; Page: 12A; Enumeration District: 196; Image: 723

I would suggest you get their marriage certificate - it should show his parents' names on it. The Swedes often had 3 or more 'first names' - my grandfather had 3 but used only one of them and then "Americanized" it.

Hope this helps. I could not find him with first name "Charles" on any ship manifests.
