Johannes Lundborg was born in Tumberg's Socken, Westergothland, Sweden. In 1858 Johannes, with three of his brothers, Anders, Gustav, and Lars, came to American from Sweden. In 1860 they moved to the West Lake settlement (now called Monson Lake) near the boundary between Swift and Kandiyohi counties in Minnesota. In July of 1861 they filed claims in sections five and six of Arctander township, Kandiyohi county. In that same month they were joined by their parents, Andreas and Lena, brother Samuel, and sister Johanna, who had just arrived from Sweden. On August 20, 1862, the third day of the Dakota uprising, Indians attacked the West Lake settlement, killing all except one in each of the two Broberg families, and three of Johannes Lundborg's brothers (Anders, Gustav, and Lars). His other brother, Samuel, was wounded. Most of the West Lake victims had just attended a religious service at the Andreas Lundborg home. The Lundborgs left the West Lake area following the attack. After moving to Afton in Washington county, and then back to West Lake, the surviving Lundborgs eventually moved to the West Union area of Carver county, Minnesota. Johannes served in the 11th Minnesota Infantry during the Civil War, and later farmed in the southeast quarter of section 12, Hancock Township, about a mile and a half south of the cemetery in which he is buried.
