Emil Ellertsen born 1863 in Sem, Vestfold, emigrated to USA late 19th century

Emil Conrad Jacob Ellertsen was born 27 Dec 1863 in Sem, Vestfold. His Father was Ellert Lars Larsen and Mother was Kristine Christensdatter (unwed).

He was listed in the 1865 census living at Sem where he had apparently been left to live with his grandparents Christen Gulbrandsen and Else Knudsdatter.

He emigrated to the USA before the end of the century because it is known that he married Anna Beatty in Cambridge, Mass, and they had a daughter Caroline, my maternal grandmother, born there on 8 Mar 1888.

I am trying to bridge the gap between his birth and his emigration to Cambridge. Family lore thinks he or his father may have been a ship's cook.
