Brother of my Grand Mother emigrated in 1884, travelling from Bergen together with his uncle Lars J Bauge (Lewis Boyd) who had visited Norway.
I have track of their journey all the way to the arrival at Ellis Island. In 1900 there is a Ole Larsen in Stuntz, Saint Louis, Minnesota. In 1910 there is a Ole Boyd registered in Aurora Ward 7, Kane, Illinois married to Liddie Boyd.
Anybody who can give any feedback to my searc, will be highly appreciated

There are 19 Ole Larson or Larsen's arriving in 1884 in the 1900 US Census. Can you provide a birth date and year.

So ... Ole Nicolai Larson Rĝo is the brother of your grandmother and was traveling in 1884 with his uncle Lars J Bauge and you'd like to locate him in America?
Will you please post that immigration record? Ellis Island was not yet open in 1884.
The next step is for you to post his day-month-year of birth, his birth place, and his parents' names. These will identify him in the USA on marriage, military, citizenship, and death records.
Many times immigrants stayed near family members so you could also briefly share what you know of the family generally (your grandmother's name and dob and husband and location and other siblings, names and dob and locations in North America).

Back in an edit to say I think Anton is onto something - the emigration year you noted may be a typo for 1894? And seemingly "your" Ole Nicolai Larsen Rĝe is born about 1875 in Skċnevik, Hordaland.

This is probably the Edith listed in the 1910 US Census for Ole Boyd. She lists her arrival into the US as 1915 so maybe she went back and forth to Norway?

Jakob Olsen, Indre Bauge (1818-1893)
Gurid Larsdotter, Sekse or Rogdo (1822-1900)
parents of Lars (Louis) Jacobsen Boyd - family tree here:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~petersonhetland/GEDMill/indiI97.html

The Ole Boyd in Aurora with wife Liddie seems to be buried as Ole N. Boyd (1875-1952) - presumably for Ole Nicolai:
http://www.auroracemeteries.com/BBB/boyd.htm

Tree says Lars (Louis) Jacobsen Boyd was born 05 Aug 1852 and died 14 Sep 1919 in Hetland, South Dakota.

A lovely narrative about Lars's life:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~petersonhetland/GEDMill/indiI95.html

The family tree creator identifies Lars as being in Kendall County, Illinois, in 1880:

1880
Lisbon, Kendall, Illinois
Ever Olson 48
Anna T. Olson 52
Hansal Olson 19
John Olson 16
Susan Olson 16
Susen Olson 12
Evert Olson 9
Louis J. Boyd 30, single, farmer, b abt 1850 in Norway

...and buried here, Find a Grave memorial for Lewis Jacobsen "Lars" Boyd (1852-1919) in Hetland, Kingsbury, South Dakota:
