He has no spouse, no children and no parents.

Birth place Fryksdalen, Värmland is situated in Sweden, not Finland as the profile claims.

Death place Ridley, Chester, Pennsylvania, USA could suggest a New Sweden or New Netherland connection.

Cornelius-526 redirects to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Grelsson-16 , who is probably related somehow.

Edit: or the same person
Thank you. As there already has been one John Cornelius merged into Grelsson-16, and the sources confirm it will I propose a merge and leave it to project Sweden.
I merged him away, thank you for finding him Juha.  Would you close the question?

Unsourced, no dates, not connected to anybody else, born in a town that is identified in the wrong country, and also died in a town that is identified in the wrong county. Looks like another case of a misbegotten "person" who probably was conceived, born, and died inside somebody's genealogy software. There are far too many of these. Sorry, but I don't want to waste my time guessing who this person is supposed to be.

There is always a chance that someone smarter and/or more experienced than us comes up with a clue that connects the dots, just like Jamie Nelson did above. This is why I love this community and never give up on a profile on first sight.
