He may have used his middle name in the U.S., and this might be him in the 1900 census:

His birthdate is transcribed as Jun 1869, but on the image, June is spelled out elsewhere, so it may actually say Jan 1869, with an ‘a’ that doesn’t have a fully closed loop.

He was married in 1896 to Olivia Olson. If you order a copy of the marriage certificate from the New Britain town clerk, it should list the parents’ names, to confirm whether this is the right one.
