Carl and Millie OLSEN in Columbia County

I'm searching for information on my great grandfather, Carl K. OLSEN b. Oct 1879 in Norway. Carl was married to a Millie OLSEN, b. abt 1882 in Iowa. Millie's parents were born in Norway according to the 1910 US census for Meade County, South Dakota where she and Carl were living on their homestead.
I have a copy of the marriage license for Carl and Millie. They were married on 13 Sept 1902 in Webster City, Hamilton County, Iowa. Testimony was given by a " J. P. Olsen". I have no idea who J. P. OLSEN is....maybe a relative of Millie's?
At some point, Carl and Millie went West to Oregon, where they lived in Yankton and Houlton....these little towns now are what is considered the "St. Helen's area" of Columbia County. Carl and Millie eventually divorced according to the 1920 US census for Multnomah County--I found Carl, but ran out of time with the census and wasn't able to find Millie yet. They may have divorced early in 1920 as Carl remarried in Jun 1920. Could've been earlier...
Anyone out there have a Millie who was married to Carl OLSEN?? I would like to find out whether she and Carl ever had children together, etc. Would be more than happy to share what information I have on the two of them.
Thanks, Valerie Reynolds
