Charles (Charley) H. O. Madsen/Matsen

Charles Hulgar Otto Madsen son of Julius Madsen and Frederica Schubert was born Sept. 29, 1869 in Copenhagen, Denmark. He came to U.S. in 1888, changeing his name to Matson (says Watson on marriage cert- to Annie Jane Munger). He was married to Annie June 2, 1892 in Coldwater, Michigan. He got his naturalization papers October 28, 1898. Died February 16, 1957 at 2:20 am in Union City Michigan and was burried 3 days later in Athen Michigan.

I am looking to find more information on his parents and his brother John(?) who, to my knowledge remained in Demark. I have looked for records about 3 years ago to no avail, and have little time to do as intense research now. Sooo, I am hoping to find someone who is maybe doing the same line. He lived in Canada and Long Island and Northern Michigan before marrying, and after Annie died he married Mrs. May Sheler in 1949 (think its safe to assume they had no children) of Nashville and stayed there. He also operated his own Blacksmith shop for twenty years out of Athens (this is where he and Annie lived)

He is my Great-Great Grandfather.
