Anything on the marriage certificate regarding Ole's status, single, widowed or divorced?

Yes - on the marriage certificate it listed Ole as a bachelor. Taking that at face value it would mean that Ole wasn't married before. Correct? I also received the funeral notice for Lillian Haugen that died October 26, 1937 as I wondered if she may have been Ole's first wife. But after reading her obituary I found out she married an Ole Haugen in 1927. Three years before our Ole came to Canada. Still waiting for the 1940 census papers to arrive plus Ole's military service papers. More to come. Things are coming together. The family was hoping for a photo and I thought there might be something in his military file. Hoping to find out more soon.

Received the 1940 census document yesterday. It confirms the birth date, parents and that Ole was single. It also stated that Ole served in the Norwegian military in 1927-28. So we do have the correct Ole. If Ole was listed as single in 1940 I believe that his marriage to Elva A. Peak in 1941 was his first and only marriage. The document states that Ole was farming his entire life. So I believe he was a farmer laborer his entire life and worked for other farmers. It doesn't appear that he owned any land as nothing is listed on his death certificate or his divorce papers. Now to see if we have any extra information with his military service in the R.C.O.C. Sure wish we could find a photo of him.
