By looking at the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census records, you can see that Oscar Alf arrived in America in 1902 and Severine arrived in 1905. They married ca. 1907 and had their first child, Cecelia, in Washington in 1909.

Oscar Elf married Severine Pedersen in Snohomish, King county, Washington, on 23 Dec 1906. You can look at this marriage record here:

The SSDI says Severine was born 2 Dec 1888 and died Feb 1982. The Washington death ndex says she died 19 Feb 1982.

This looks like Severine arriving in America:

Arrival date - 1 Jun 1905
Ship "Ivernia", arriving in Boston, sailed from Liverpool
Pedersen, Severine, 16 yrs and 6 months old
from Stavanger
ticket to Seattle, Washington
final destination Balland, Washington
ticket paid for by father
traveling to uncle Nikolai Asmarvig, 135 Garrett Ave, Balland

"Asmarvik" is a farm in Rennesøy, Rogaland. This could be where Severine is from.

Severine Pedersen left Norway from Stavanger on 18 May 1905. The record shows Stavanger as her last residence and Washington as her destination.

Nikolai Asmervig

I think the way to solve this is by finding more info on Nikolai Asmervig. He was living in Ballard, Washington when Severine arrived in 1905. At some point he left for Canada, returning to Washington in 1922. There was also a Cornelius Nilsen Asmervig living in Ballard, Washington.

Cornelius arrived in America in 1882, Nikolai in 1888.

They came from a large family and many of their siblings came to America also.

Birth of Nikolai:

Born 19 Aug 1866
Nikolai Nilsen
Father: Nils Hansen Asmervig
Mother: Elen Marie Ommundsdatter
