The obituary for John Holm says he grew up in Illinois. Also, we know his younger brother, Jacob, was born in Illinois in 1857. I think this might be his family in the 1860 census:

1860 Census for Seward, Kendall county, Illinois
Gunnar, John, born Norway
Sarah, 37, born Norway
Betsey, 19, born Norway (Britha?)
John, 15, born Norway
Sarah, 10, born Norway
Jacob, 3, born Illinois

All the names fit. Apparently John was using a form of his last name "Gundersen". I don't know if he kept this last name or later took "Holm", as John and Jacob did.
