Sletten from Biri, Norway

Classification: Query
Surnames: Sletten
I have recently discovered that my ancestor Mathias Larson Sletten b. 7 May 1829 was from Biri, Norway. I also found through a site on the internet that there is a Sletten Farm located in Biri area. Would it be probable that he was raised on a part of that Farm? We have a "old picture" of a couple with a young son that has Lillehammer. engraved on the back, leading me to believe that it was taken there. That is less than 30 miles from Biri. This appears to be someone in Mathias family, but are to young to be his parents, possible a brother or sister. Would the Larson middle name (found in his civil war pension papers) mean that his fathers name was Lars?? Mathias came to America in 1847 but I have not yet found the ship he was on.
Thank you anyone in advance that can help shed some light on how I can proceed since I cannot read or speak any Norwegian.
Thanks,
Jayne
