Charles E. Johnson b. 1868

Classification: Query
Surnames: Johnson
The family story is that Charles came over from Sweden at a young age, after being orphaned, and that he was sent to a relative somewhere near Alexandria, MN. My aunt believes that he had a birthday while on Ellis Island, which according to census records I've found would have been in 1877.

I've found him in the 1920, 1930, and 1940 US Census records with enough collaborating information to be sure I've got the right Charles Johnson.

With such a common first and last name, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can trace him back to Sweden and find out anything about his parents?
