This is probably your Gustaf Lundgren but note that he was born July 5, 1829 and not May 7, 1829. Swedes write dates as day-month-year and Americans usually write dates as month-day-year. Probably the date was written the Swedish way but misinterpreted as the American way. There really is a difference between 5-7-1829 (May 7 in the U.S. and 5 July in the U.S.) and 7-5-1829 (July 5 in the U.S. and 7 May in Sweden).
Emibas was made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.
Faktorismed = some sort of blacksmith (smed). Faktor is foreman, I think. (unmarried man)
