Johan Peter Johansson was born as the third child in a family of ten brothers and sisters. He grew up in the parish of Algutsboda, where the possibilities of making a living were limited. The family lived in Eriksmåla and didn't move around as many people did at this period of time in Sweden. Johan Peter's father was a crofter and made his living in different ways, among other things as a rag man. In 1863 Johan Peter moved to the farm Grisebo Söregård in Ljuder. After one year there he went back to Algutsboda for some time. In Nov. 1864 he went to the glassworks in Hovmantorp as a smith's assistent. He remained there for three years. At the end of the decade 1860-1870 there were some really bad years with many crop-failures. More and more people decided to emigrate, so did Johan Peter and his brother Frans Vilhelm. The latter emigrated in June 1870 to America and so did Johan Peter at about the same time. At the emigration they changed their names as many emigrants did. In this case their name was changed from Johansson to Stenberg. In USA Johan Peter worked as a wheelwright in Burlington, Iowa, where he settled down for a while. He married Kristina Sofia Eriksdotter. During this first period of time there was another change of names - now from Stenberg to Boorkman. Frans was even changed to Frank and Johan to John. The John Peter Boorkman family moved later on to Madison, Indiana, where John Peter eventually died in January 1913.
