There is a birth of a Johannes who could have been Henriksson in the Laxarby birth records. Johannes was born 16 February 1858. (subscription)

His parents were Henric ___? and wife M. Lisa Bryngelsdotter who lived in Kronan? in that parish. (This record is very dim.)

I found the family in the household examination records.

Henric Andersson, born 1 November 1819 in Steneby
wife Maria Lisa Bryngelsdotter, born 26 March 1829 in Ed (There is a Edsleskog parish nearby or also there is a Dals-Ed. Maybe "Ed" is one of those parishes.)
Emanuel, born 6 October 1851 in "Lby" (Laxarby)
Aron, born 26 September 1854 in Ed
Lovisa, born 21 March 1856 in "Lby"
Johannes, born 16 February 1858 "ibm" (Ibidem, which is Latin for the same place as the person above him, so he was born in Laxarby.)
Anna Cajsa, born 11 October 1860 in "do" (ditto, so she was also born in Laxarby)

"His father`s name was also Johannes Henderson his mother`s name was Annie Peterson."

What is the source of that information?

Remember that many of us have found the parish of birth and much more using the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center. Check with that archive to see what the membership list says for his parish of birth.
