What happened to Ole Knudsen Folstad/Ole Knutson?

I am trying to find out what happened to Ole Knudsen Folstad, b. 24 Jan. 1878 in Støren, Norway. The emigration record shows he left Trondheim on 18 April 1900 - destination Toronto, SD. He is traveling with Lauritz Jacobsen Lien, age 19 and brothers Nils and John Johassen Aune, 21 and 17 years of age.

I found him in the 1900 South Dakota Census in Scandinavia, Deuel Co, SD where his name is listed as Ole Knutson:
Ole KNUTSON, b. Jan 1878, emigration 1900 - farm laborer - living with family of John J. Wold, who was b. Jan 1871, and who emig. 1892 Wife: Ingebor Wold, b. Apr. 1880 in Wis. Daughter Sophia A., b. March 1900 in SD.
Census was taken 19 June 1900. I am guessing that John J. Wold may have also been from Støren area. There are other names with Støren area heritage listed on same page: Rottum, Froseth, Moen, Rogness,

Does anyone connect with this Ole Knutson or any knowledge of what happened to Old Knutson?
