If you look at the details recorded in the 1930 and 1920 US federal censuses for Albert you can get an approximate year that he immigrated to the US. (If you can find him in more censuses hopefully that time period would be substantiated.) That would seem to indicate that he came to the US as a child of 11 years or younger. So he probably came with other family members.
IF you think he sailed from Europe from a Norwegian port you can check the emigrant register databases at the Digitalarkivet website. You have some reason to think he may have come through Troms Norway?
