I would agree this is them! If so, we see that Martin is called Ove in this census.

I also know that the Ole Johnson and Anne Martha Olsdatter from Stod had a son born as Henrik Andreas Olsen. We see a Henrik Andrias Olsen working on the Ulven farm in Stod in the same census year:

This is significant because Martin O Helland had a brother named Henry who immigrated to the US several years after him. Though his headstone bears the name Henry O Helland, the name ULVEN is engraved in large letters at the top:
The two surnames on the headstone really confused some of us for many years until we started to grasp the Norwegian naming conventions.
