That jav mark will get him on the 4-event combo list plus several other combo lists with javelin. Still javelin is a relatively weaker event for him compared to shot-disc-hammer, which makes Eric Lemming the more balanced all-around athlete of the pre-WWI era.

Lemming the most balanced but not the best. On any given day was the best on the world on hammer shot or discus, and the best in the US in javelin. How many men have won Olympic medals in four throwing events and was world record in ten

I dug up one estimated mark for Ralph Rose in the #56 weight from this website:
So I can add him to the 5-event combo list. He scores well. If anyone has his PR for #56 weight and javelin, let me know.
I was also able to add Avery Brundage to the 4-event list and Jim Thorpe to the shot-disc-jav list.
