Jens Martin Nielsen, b. may 5. 1879 in Sindal Denmark

Jens Martin Nielsen is my g-grandfather. He left Denmark in 1910, arrived at Ellis Island juni 22. 1910 and seemed to be on his way til Racine, Wisconsin.
In Denmark he left a pregnant wife and 6 children.
My g-grandparents had an agreement, that he should find work, send money to Denmark and she and the children could then leave Denmark too.
But something happened - no one knows. He stayed in USA, she in Denmark, and they where divorced. My g-grandmother never talk about it.
But what became of my g-greatgrandfather?
I think I have found him in census 1930 named Jens Nelson and married to Karin - also Danish, census 1930 Illinois, cook county.
Did he get children?
When did he die ang where?
Can anyone help me?
