Looking for missing link: "Charlie" Khon/Khons/Kraus/Khaus DOB in late 1800's

I am looking for our family's missing link & his family heritage and lineage. His name was "Charlie" Khon and was born in the late 1800's. He was married to Augusta May "Mayme" Scrambling (DOB:1891) and had a son (DOB:1907), Francis Louis Khon. He left his family around 1914, never to be heard from again. (this occurred in Jackson County, Michigan). We have no information on Charlie other than speculation and stories passed down from family members. After years of researching, I found out that Charlie or someone near this time-frame had changed the last name from "Khons" to our current last name "Khon". I found that before this happened, a Township recorder misspelled the last name at some point from a handwritten name of "Kraus" and misinterpreted the "r" for an "h" and the "a" for an "o", hence the "Khons" name. That is, if my research is correct. I included other possible spellings to cover those possibilities. (Khon, Khons, Kraus, Khaus)
My dilemma at hand is that I am having to figure out where Charlie went, figure out if he changed his name again, and try to find his family from before or after he left Mayme Scrambling. I would love to be able to complete my husband's family tree. Any & all information is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
