I am searching for the ancestry of Charles Arthur Hextrum who was born in Sweden on 29 Nov 1845. He died on 1 Jan 1927 in San , CA. He was married to Charlotte Carson who was born in Sweden on 30 Sept 1847 and died in Marin Co. CA on 30 Apr 1930. From census records, it appears that they immigrated to New York in 1868. Children were born in Chicago, IL, and Nashville, TN, before they settled in San Francisco. It is assumed that Hextrum may be an Americanized surname. Any info on Swedish surname birthplace sought.
