Charles is an Americanization of Carl/Karl. (C and K are interchangeable.)

Here is a possibility for your Charles. Hopefully you have found a specific birthdate by now.

Emibas CD:

Emibas was made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

He seems to be this person found on Emihamn. Emihamn was made from registrations with Swedish port police before leaving Sweden. (Not all Swedes left through a Swedish port.)

To research your people in the U.S. (so that you can confirm that these are yours or learn where yours came from in Sweden), try the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center. They have a website but their extensive collection of records is NOT online.
