Thank you for your willingness to help. We believe Eva got it right (attached here below). The birth dates in Sweden match the dates in America and so does the place where he came to America. Do you believe the American information and the Swedish information do not match? Thank you for your help!
“I think I found James Benson as Emanuel Bengtsson, born 27 Feb 1858 in Gunnarsjö parish to Bengt Andreasson and Inger Lena Caspersdotter.
"Sweden Baptisms, 1611-1920", database, FamilySearch(https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FKC5-SRX : 23 June 2020), Emanuel, 1858.
This guy worked as a farm hand in different places down in Skåne when he left home. Or maybe he worked in coal mines, they've got some down there (not my home territory).
The thing is that when he was in Jonstorp, his birth date was incorrectly entered as 29/2 1858, which seems pretty convincing that it's the same guy. (They didn't have computerized date checks in those days :-)

He moved on to Rolfstorp parish (almost back home) in October 1881, but I'm not finding him there.
According to the census 1900 James Benson immigrated in 1883 - And I found Emanuel Bengtsson (25) on board the Rollo, departing Göteborg 25 May 1883, coming from Varberg (which is the nearest city to Gunnarsjö and Rolfstorp) and intended final destination Landsford Pa.
