Thomas Thompson from Norway - Cannot find record of him before U.S.

Classification: Query
Surnames: Thompson
Thomas A. Thompson, my 2nd great grandfather (born c 1855) emigrated to the US from Norway sometime near 1886 (according to the US Census) but I have had no luck tracking him into Norway itself.

He was probably travelling with his family (daughters Signy and Irma, son Arne) but they may have come over later. There are indications that he (re)married in the US, so I doubt he travelled with his wife. They eventually settled in the Seattle, WA area where they lived for most of their lives. I was able to pick them up in the 1910 Census and thereafter.

I have tried searching the DigitalArkivet but have found nothing. I don't know what city or county they came from, although family tradition says they came from Oslo.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to proceed, I would appreciate your input
