This profile has his name as John Robert Mason but there are no records or sources for the use of John as a 1st name.  Does anyone have more info and source for this name or should it be removed?

You should check it with the other profile managers first. If no John appears as a result, It should be changed to reflect the most solid piece  of evidence available as to the name recorded in records. I would not even record an AKA at this point unless a solid source showing John appears. A note should be made to explain the change.
