When I took RISBERG into account, and searched for that lastname in 1900 census, I believe I found Margarettas younger brother Gustav:

He was at the LANGMOEN farm in Nord-Rana, Nordland (county north of Nord-Trøndelag where Åsen and Frosta is). It says he was born in 1864 in Nord-Trøndelag, which is a match to him being in his second year in 1865 census. 1864 was his first year (funny census-counting).

He is married to Olava Dorthea Olsdatter b. 1872. Their first son is obviously named after her father (0le): Ole Ingvald Risberg b. 1895, their first daughter is named after Gustav`s mother: Jonette Otelie Risberg b. 1898, and they had Ingeborg Kristine Risberg b. 1900, probably named after the maternal grandmother.

When I look further I actually find the rest of the family! That there was a Jonetta at Strømssve seems to have been a coincidence - she is obviously living with her husband here:

At the SELVÅGEN farm in Gildeskål kommune (not far from Nord-Rana kommune): Otto Risberg b. 1831 in Åsen, Nord-Trøndelag, Jonette Risberg b. 1833 in Åsen, Nord-Trøndelag and Olav Risberg b. 1879 after they moved north, in Mo (which is in Rana), Helgeland, Nordland county. Otto was a carpenter, Olav a fisherman.
In the same kommune (Gildeskål) are also a couple of other Risbergs. I believe Otto and Jonette aslo had the daughter Nicoline in 1870 in Åsen and maybe Petra in Trondheim in 1876, both living in Gildeskål in 1900.

Using the name Risberg is a clear indication that they lived at Risberg before they moved from Ã…sen, quite possibly is this where Otto was born.

This Nicolai Ellevs. is probably his brother at Risberg in 1865:

And here is Otto and Nicolai`s father Ellev Ellevsen Risberg at Risberg in 1801:

His father was Ellev Joensen, age 82 in 1801 census (below Ellev, age 16, in the census), and their mother was Sigrie Olsdtr., age 62 (Ellev Joensen`s second marriage). Joensen was often spelled Johnsen later in the 1800s, and Margarettas brother`s were probably named after him...
Ellev Ellevsen had the siblings Ole Ellevsen, age 25 and Giertrue Ellevsdatter (Ellev`s daughter) age 33. Giertrue had the son Peter Gudmundsen, age 6, out of wedlock, census says.
