Okay now I am going to post the records for "Anna Serine Selsand" (1901-1992) who supposedly married Albert Aasland (1898-1982) and they are buried in Valley City, Barnes, North Dakota and his name and street address appear on Carrie Sophia Nordin's death record.

Found in US Public Records that Albert E Aasland lived at 725 5th St SW Stsw, Valley City, ND, and that address matches Carrie's death certificate, so Albert and Anna are definitely the people who are meant.

Anna Serine Selsand (information below as posted on a family tree on
Birth 15 Apr 1901 in Ransom Co., ND
Death 01 Aug 1992 in Valley City, ND

HER FATHER (information from a family tree on
Ole Anton Lind Selsand
Birth 23 Jun 1870 in Ibestad Troms Fylke, Norway
Death 19 Jul 1959 in Valley City, ND

HER MOTHER (information from a family tree on
Sunova Amellia Nilson [probably should say Synneva]
Birth 14 Mar 1879 in Stokmarknes WesteraaLen, Norway
Death 18 Oct 1928 in Ransom Co., ND

Back in an edit to add the following from thoraway (see below): Suniva Amelia Eliassdatter was born in Hadsel, Nordland, Norway ("one of the districts in the old region often called Vesterålen") Suniva's father lives with her in the 1920 census; he is Elias Selsand born about 1843. It could be that his patronymic is Nilson and Suniva used his patronymic in the USA, and maybe that is why the family tree creator calls her Suniva Amelia Nilson. Just a guess, needs to be researched.

HER HUSBAND (information from a family tree on
Albert Aasland
Birth 11 May 1898
Death Mar 1982 in Valley City, ND

Back in an edit and adding that Albert's father Jørgen Olsen Aasland and mother Signe Halvorsdatter both came from Bø, Telemark, Norway. They married in Dodge county, Minnesota, in 1884, as found by thoraway, see below.

Anna and Albert MARRIED June 30, 1950 in Litchfield, North Dakota

As you can see Carrie was born many years before these parents were born.
I checked the family tree to see whether the parents of these parents had a daughter "Carrie" or "Caroline" or "Karoline" etc. and no one with a similar name listed as a child.

Therefore it seems as though the death record is misleading, and that in fact Anna Aasland is not a biological sister to Carrie, though she could be a relation.
