They are from Næs or Nes in Akershus fylke (county).
You wrote that Kristiane (Christiane's) twin, Emil, may have emigrated to California, but her twin is named Olaf, right? That is what the census seems to indicate.
Was it Emil in California?

Because I did find an Emil Olsen who died in California, with THE SAME birthdate as your Emil Olsen, January 2, 1868, and the father's last name given as Christensen.
Very likely.

OLSEN EMIL 01/02/1868 CHRISTENSEN M REST (OTHER) LOS ANGELES(19) 09/23/1953 85 yrs

Emil Olsen died in Los Angeles County, California at age 85, Sept. 23, 1953.


I went to familysearch.org/search and did a parent search, where you just type in the names of the parents, and no children's names. I also typed in Nes, Akershus for the place.
Found these children's births.

It is possible that not all of these children survived until adulthood. But it is helpful to have their birthdates, especially to find them on later census records in Norway, and in the USA.

There is an Emil Olsen/Olson on the 1930 and 1940 censuses, a widower, who was born in 1868 in Norway. Living in Los Angeles county. Two sons I think, one born in Norway, one in New York.
