Delmer Hagen's immigrant ancestor from Norway was ANders Guldbrandsen Solbergeist born 30 April, 1831. While in Norway in 2009, I visited what I thought was the site of his birth.
In 2010, through Herb Solberg of Grand Forks, and Pastor Rick Craig, I obtained a photograph of the grave of Anders Solberg - and was astonished to see a birth date of 15 April, 1845. Also, the headstone was for Anders H. Solberg and Delmer's Anders had a middle name of Guldbrandsen.
To decide if there really were 2 different people we went to the Norwegian Digital Archives - and yes, there were 2:
