Charles Costenson (born Dec. 14, 1846)
He married Hedda/Hada/Hilda/Hattie nee Noyd nee Johnsen/Johnson (born Dec 2, 1842). .

They had the following children (pictured on last post)

More on the kids later...

Both Charles & Hedda were born in Sweden.  She had been married before and had son Walter G. Johnson with Albert Johnson.  I don't know yet if the 2 "Walter" sons are the same or different. I don't know if I have a picture of Hedda. She may be one of the unknowns listed in a prior blog post.

Hedda & Charles ended up in Palacios, Matagorda County, Texas
