Good find Vivi. The Original Poster started this thread in 1998, and so she might not answer. I posted "just in case" due to the discussion currently underway in the other forum. But yes, I am certain you found her family!

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Emigrating from Bergen 1922 8/6 Britha Johannesen Bauge, and she is identified as the mother of the children Solveig and Malvin:

* Britha Johannesen Bauge age 26 born in 1896 in Skånevik and living in Skånevik, married, Penge, Farmers wife, traveling to Amk. Ivell Iowa [Amk = Amerika] Reiser til sin mand [going to her husband] Husmor, traveling on the Norske Amk. shipping line II, yes, Reisepass Hdl. pkm.
* Solveig Tolleivsen Bauge age 3 born 1919 in Skånevik living in Skånevik, Penge, Forr. Børn Amk. Ivell Iowa Reiser med sin mor Barn Norske Amk. Lj. II Ja
* Malvin Tollevsen Bauge age 1 born 1921 in Skånevik living in Skånevik, Penge, Forr. Børn, Amk. Ivell Iowa, Reiser med sin mor, Barn, Norske Amk. Lj. II

Notice that the passengers below her on this list are also from Skånevik and they are traveling to Aurora, Kane, Illinois - the residence of the Bauge/Boyd families discussed in the link I posted. So apparently there is a colony of family and/or friends and neighbors who stuck together and live near each other in America. Still more folks from Skånevik and traveling with the farm name Bauge are found arriving at Ellis Island in the years before and after. Some could be related; some would be neighbors from Norway.

Here is Tolleif arriving at Ellis Island:

Ship of Travel: Stavangerfjord

Date of Arrival: Aug 09, 1921
Manifest Line Number: 0002
Name: Tolleif Bauge
Age at Arrival: 28y
Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ethnicity: Norway, Scandinavian
Last Place of Residence: Skaanevik, Norway

Nearest relative in country whence alien came: wife, Brita Bauge, Höilandsbygden, Söndhordland

Traveling to brother Andrew Boyd in Sheridan, Illinois (Boyd is typewritten and overwritten with Bauge)

And now turns up more from the Original Poster:

...and here:
"Malvin lists his father's name on his social security application as Andreas Boyd, so
that may be what Tollef's name was changed to."
