Two brothers Bertelsen emigrated from Denmark to US 1903 and 1911

I’m looking for two brothers of my grandmother, or to be more precise the possible descendants of at least one of them in the US. They emigrated 1903 and 1911 as shown below. I learned from a cousin that one of them could have returned and the other stayed in the US. She remembers her grandmother speaking of one brother sending letters; that was 1940’s or early 1950’s.

They were:

1) Laurits Kristian Bert(h)elsen, born 5. Feb. 1881 in Tømmerby Parish, Vester Han District, Thisted County, Denmark.
Arrival found on Ellis Island records for 1903:

First Name: Launts Christian
Last Name: Bertlsen
Ethnicity: Denmark, Scandinavian
Last Place of Residence: Bjerget
Date of Arrival: Apr 23, 1903
Age at Arrival: 24 Gender: M Marital Status: S
Ship of Travel: Etruria
Port of Departure: Liverpool
Manifest Line Number: 0011

However, the link to the original ships manifest leads to a wrong ship in a wrong year:-((
Also the age is not correct; he was born 1881 and should be 22 at arrival. The rest fits.

2) Bertel Kristian Bert(h)elsen, born 11. July 1886 in Tømmerby Parish, Vester Han District, Thisted County, Denmark
Arrival found on Ellis Island records for 1911:

First Name: Bertel
Last Name: Bertelsen
Ethnicity: Denmark, Scandinavian
Last Place of Residence: Bjerget, Denmark
Date of Arrival: Aug 22, 1911
Age at Arrival: 25y Gender: M Marital Status: S
Ship of Travel: Oscar ll
Port of Departure: Copenhagen
Manifest Line Number: 0028

This time the manifest is linked correctly and tells that he was going to his older brother in Morris Plains ??, New Jersey. Two screenshots attached.

Any information on immigration and possible family in the US would be appreciated. Note that I have all information on family, birth etc. in Denmark, so don’t waste your time with that.
