Stone Family from Norway; Peter, Anna, steven, George Peter and Barbara Stone

Stone Family from Norway; Peter, Anna, steven, George Peter and Barbara Stone

Classification: Query
I am doing family research for a family that has very little info. I have found a couple of documents that tells me the "Stone" family I am researching came from Norway.
Their journey probably occurred around 1980. The father was Peter stone, may have been born around 1870, his wife was Anna Clemons, daughter named Barbara who married an "Anderson", two sons; George peter and Steven. George Peter was the grandfather of this family. We have his dates and that he was born in Norway, as was his parents and siblings.
In theobit, it gives steven still in Canada at that time (1956)........ I have hit a solid "Stone"wall, have no ideal how to find them in Norway because I know nothing about Norway or any info except name on Peter or Anna Clemons.
Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Some very incorrect dates given above?

One would hope that you'll be able to find some Canadian documents/censuses/etc. that will at least give you birth years and immigration years for those born in Norway.

I see that you have made a family tree at ancestry.com.

How certain are you about this information?

Yes, thank you! I think this is the Stephen Stone from Norway that I am looking for. I appreciate the help so very much. Is it possible that you could send a link to the Canada Cenus?

I was not certain of ages. I had names and estimates but that was it. Another person has found the family listed in 1900 Nes Buskerud, Norway Census with dates, family members, etc for 1900. The information you have given me on Stephen Stone is certainly a wonderful lead to Stephen Stones family. Thank you so very much

Hi,
I noticed that your tree has a lot of incorrect records linked to it. Some of the dates are also off a bit. The person you list as "Barbro Stone" had a twin brother that apparently died young. The family was not yet living at "Støen" when Barbro was born, they were living at a farm called "Viken".
