Anett and spmaxson:
Actually, your Boyes were related. Boye B. Skeie (born in 1895) was an uncle to Boye B. Skeie (born in 1900). I'll list their relationship at the end of this message.

spmaxson's Boye:
Boye Boyeson Skeie (b. December 11, 1895 - December 19, 1941) immigrated to Minnesota in 1915. His 1917 WWI draft card places him in Grand Forks, ND. At that time, he was single. According to the Vang bygdebok (Vol. A, page 773), Boye returned to Vang Kommune, Oppland County, Norway for a visit from 1919-1920. The bygdebok states he then moved to Canada, which may be true, but he married Gladys Dietrich in Itasca County, MN on June 2, 1924.

Here is Bøye/Boie in the 1900 Vang census, living with his parents, siblings and grandparents at the cotter's farm "Skjeie." (It was a sub-farm of Kattevøl):

Here is Boie in the 1910 Norway census:

in 1930, Boye and Gladys were living in Third River, Itasca County, MN with their 4 daughters. Their son was born the following year. All 5 were born in Itasca Co. The 1940 census shows Boye, a widowed farmer, with his children living with him.
