In England, in 1873 a child was born. His parents were Karl Oskar Alexandersson Ahlstedt and Mary Elizabeth Jane Cook. His parents were married when the boy was born. Karl Oskar was a mariner and was born in Finland about 1851. Their son was named Karl Hugo.

Later, after Karl Oskar did a runner, his wife remarried. I have never been able to find Karl Oskar.

I now have found something that may shed some light on what happened to Karl Oskar:

On January 4, 1881, in Bjorkang , Skaraborg [birth county], Sweden a child was born and named Karl Hugo Ahlstedt.

[B]Could the father of these 2 boys be one and the same person?

My attempts to find out have not yielded any satisfactory results.
