In the 1910 Norwegian census, she was living with her in-laws, the Krtistiansens, in Egge. There was no sign of her husband so I am guessing that he had died. Although it says something like "seamstress, man sojourning in America"? So perhaps he had run off to America? Why was she using Haugen? She is also noted as Emma Haugen on the marriage register with Eilert Eliasson. She seems to have adopted the family name by which her children were known.
Emma came to Canada to after the death of her sister Martine to help Einar look after the younger children. Her daughter Eldrid ended up marrying her sister's son Ludwig. Whose biological daughter was Eldred? I have found her, Olav, and Eldrid leaving Trondheim on July 24, 1922. So she came not that long after Martine's death, not more than a year later as the story goes. I also found all three of them leaving for Canada from Liverpool on July 29, 1922. She declared herself as married. Where was John?
She married Eilert Eliason in Montana for some reason, even though the marriage license says that both of them were living in Beaubien, Canada. The license says that she was married before but does not say whether she was widowed or divorced.

In the 1900 Norway census, she is Anna Hansen, born in Beistaden.

He is to be found on a ship travelling from Norway to Canada, via Liverpool, to visit his uncle John in Bottineau. He was with his uncle Einar and family. I have to wonder if he stayed in the US, just using the name Olaf Hansen?

According to the Sparbu/Ogndalbook V page 421 he was born in Røra, NTrøndelag and he and his wife lived there until they some time before 1819 moved northwords to Ogndal and settled on the small tenant farm - Semsplass - which was "a place under the main farm SEM" . The book says that their first 3 children were born in Røra, N-Trøndelag, but it is a possibility that they had more than 5 children....
