We need all information you can get from US, census information, marriage, children, death, immigration. Any information may help.

Some candidates from Norwegian records to check:

He emigrated to where? When did he emigrate? What documents have been exhausted for information that were created in his new country? and which haven't?

Around 1894? Meaning plus or minus 1 year? 2 years? 5 years?

What details about him did you find on his Minnesota Death Certificate? Where was he living in which US censuses and under which name(s)?

You don't yet have enough information from US documents, or you haven't yet shared that information. There is little we can do to help you at this point but advise you to gather ALL the US documents you can and extract the vital information those might contain.

Elmer Anderson and Viola Dokken married in Hennepin County on 22 Sep 1940. There should be more data on the marriage record.
