Charles Albert may have anglicized his name from Carl or Karl. I remember Theodore & Gladys (Ted's wife) saying that Charles first came to the US via the usual immigration channel in NYC, in 1888.

Manitowoc residency records online nay reflect Charles' entry. Immigrants were required to register their presence in the United States by filing a declaration of intent with the government.

ftp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/wi/manitowoc/misc/dis.txt

- has a list of S thru V surnames --

3/4 down that page is an entry for a Charles in the very year that Ted mentioned: 1888 --

Charles.....................1863...New York......1888 Apr....1893 Apr 01

The long blank space is where most of the other entries contain country of Origin. Perhaps territorial disputes made the exact nationality in question (e.g. Prussia v. Austria v. Germany) or perhaps Charles declined to state for political reasons, such as the country in question being out-of-favor with the administration of the time.
