It is possible that there are still relatives of these people living in Troms and throughout Norway. Erik Joseph Larsen's sister, Ellen Johanna Petrikke Olsdatter, married to Anders Pedersen and lived at Stordalen and there are many descendants in Troms and throughout Norway. Erik Joseph Larsen's father, Ole Lars Eriksen, had a brother, Joseph Eriksen who died in 1893 at Storstennæs and he had descendants in Troms. In the 1900 census his son, Sivert Josefsen was also on Storstennæs with his family. In the 1976 Lyngen Bygebok it shows that Sivert Josephsen got the farm from Joseph Eriksen in 1889. In 1966 the farm went from Ingvald Storsteinnes to Inge Storsteinnes. Is this family still in Troms? Also, in the 1900 census Joseph Eriksen's daughter, Anne Josefsen was at Bredvik with husband, Samuel Pedersen and children. Is this family still in Troms?
