Is Superboy 19 a reference to Son of Superman?

Excuse me if I'm completely wrong here, but I'm not that well versed in Superboy history.

Anyway, a little while ago I read the elseworld's story Son of Superman where the son of Lois and Clark is named Jon Kent. When I read Superboy 19, it brought that to mind right away.

Not a big deal, I just assumed that Son of Superman is a largely forgotten story (not that it's bad, I just never see anyone mention it)

All star superman can also be part of the inspiration for issue 19 jon/kon. Its not the acual same jon kent, but inspiration for sure.
