Would surprise me if this is our man. The middle name A does not fit, nor imigration year nor birth date. Thanks anyway, good try!

This fellow was a little hard to follow. His birthyear is all over the board Jul 1867, 1868, 1865, 1871, 1874, 1875; year of migration also varies 1893, 1898, rendering of his last name varies a lot, too. He does have a younger brother whose name is not Knut but Sam and whose birthdate is about 10 years off his brother's, so way more than 2 years. Ole's naturalization record says he landed in Aug 1893 in New York and gives middle initial as K. So here is the exploration:

And this is probably his FAG:

The majority of the Siljord names in Wisconsin are buried in a cemetery named "Hitterdahl" in Waupaca county.

A possible for the brother Sam is this one named Svennung K Siljord:

Svenning Kittelsen Seljord leaving in 1903 for Wisconsin:

Svenning from someplace in Telemark arriving via Canada headed to brother O. Seljord in Iola Wisconsin

This might very well be our Ole, not? Strongest indication is that same location address all down the line. Isnt differences in name rendering mostly down to misreading of handwriting ? What is the "naturilazation index" anyway?

Well, the naturalization record is Ole's record of process to become US citizen. Not sure if he became citizen as usually month and year of arrival are found in the first papers.

The brother Sam is of interest but I suspect after looking for him that he and Ole came from Hitterdal in Telemark or some other place in Telemark, so might not be yours anyway.

If you are registered and signed in at familysearch you can look at the links to the various census schedules and judge for yourself on how the name got messed up.

Ancestry found a person named K Seljord in 1949 voter list in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He was a janitor. However, this person is likely to be Kittle Seljard who died on 28 July 1951 in St. Albert, Alberta.
