I am still looking for Ole Aukland!! While I very much appreciate all of the information I've received, I don't feel any closer to finding out where he was from or when he came to the US. I do know that he was born Dec 12, 1867 in Norway and died Sept 10, 1902 in Nielsville, MN. He married Emma Hauge who died in 1963 in Nielsville. No one thought to ask her any questions, she may not have known much either. Any help much appreciated.
