Thank you. I had that info as well. Need to know if there is any info on him about where in Sweden he was born or who his parents were.  I can read some basic Swedish but haven’t found what I need

A bit more information is needed from your side, I think.

Johan Nilsson was an extremely common name in Sweden - this will in all likelihood be what a John Nelson was called before emigration.

Gaston, on the other hand, is a very unlikely name for a Swede at that time. It could be that he was Johan Gustav before emigration. This would be another very common name.
