From Finland to Norway

My gguncle Matts Erikson Väärämäki moved to Norway in 1878. He was born in Alajärvi 7 Aug 1857. Church record says he went to "Ruija", which means Finnmark area. In 1888 he was asked from home parish a clearance certificate for getting married there. And finally, 1909-1917 period of church records includes a mention "said to have died" Family tales tells he was a fisherman and he had drowned on a fishing trip.

I've tried to find something about him from a Norwegian archives without any success. I hope someone could help me to trace him or his possible descendants
