I'm looking for information about Ben Olson, b May 8th 1888 in Elverum, Norway, who lived on West Bayfield St, Washburn in 1917. He worked at the Barksdale Works factory, Acid Line. How long did he work/stay in Washburn?

He first immigrated to the US in Jun 1907 under the name Bernt Graabergsven. He then went to up to his uncle Gunder Peterson and brother Paul Olson in Strum, Wisconsin. He went back to Norway in Jan 1920 and returned to America in August/September 1923. After that we don't know what happened to him. Any information would be great.
