Skarsten, Andrew (Anders) and family

Classification: Query
Surnames: Skarsten
Looking for ancestors of Andrew/Anders O Skarsten, b. 21 Aug 1876, Olden, Nordfjord, Norway, m. Ragna Dessrude, d/o Hans Knutson Dessrude & Anne Rustoen. Andrew died in McCone, MN 18 Sep 1951 and Ragna died in

Andrew & Ragna both emigrated to the US (separately), met and married in Iowa, where they had their first child Odin, b. 19 Nov 1906, then moved to Benson Cnty, ND, where they had 8 more children, Alice b. 1908, Alma b. 14 Jul, 1910, Norma b. 17 Apr 1912, Emma (Florence) b. 1914, Albert b. 13 Aug 1916, Mabel b. 21 Nov 1918, Norman b 11 May 1921 & Paul b 1923.

Andrew was the youngest of 6 siblings, Rasmus b. 1865, Harald b. 1866, Hans b. 1868, Eli b. 1870 and Marianne b. 1873. I show the parents as Daave Ola and Anne Rustoen, both of whom died in 1876 in Norway, Anne in childbirth, Daave of grief 3 months later (so the story goes).

Any information on the ancestors of Andrew/Anders Skarsten would be greatly appreciated. I know how difficult it is tracking them down, due to the varied ways they came up with surnames, if they had one at all.
