Thanks jkmaler I think that clears up Laura marrying in America and i understand your meaning of why she married so quickly (love makes the world go round) i wonder what happened to Alf if he was her son?

Alf was born in Oslo on January 11 1894.
He was then placed with a family in Onsøy, where we can find him in the 1900 census. He is still with the same family in the 1910 census.
In the 1920 census, he is working as a farm labourer, which he was the rest of his life. Alf got a special medal in 1950 for 37 years of loyal work on the same farm. Later he also receives honours from the Society for welfare of animals for good stewardship of his life stock. Alf dies in 1979. He never married or got any children, but following his achievements mentioned in Norwegian newspapers, he lived a full life and was appreciated by friends and farmers.

Kristian, born in 1897 in Drammen is the legitimate child of Holger and his wife. He was teh father of Alf, but never married Laura. He then married another woman and they settled first in Drammen, then moved to Fredrikstad.

The woman in this link is not the same as Laura Inga Alexandra. The woman in this census is the new wife of Holger, but she was born in a different place.

just tie this up i wondered how Laura Met her husband, but a Norwegian friend who carried out the last part f this search said that Laura wasnt found anywhere in the 1900 census but she did find a Laura Pedersen going to America as a companinion around that time so maybe this is Laura and this is when she met her future husband

Well, the dodfallsprotokol of her mother doesn't say Laura is in America in 1901 but in (looks like) Græsvig which is part of Onso.

first i have to say that the idea of Laura meeting her Husband looks like she visited America with a companion in 1899 and returned to Norway, before hurrying back to be married, i have contact with a genealogist in Eau Claire, and he brought me up to date, its rather sad , as Laura had her baby girl in November 1902, she named her baby Elizabeth thats her mothers middle name, but the wee girl died of measles in 1906,
