The mother and 5 children left Norway from Oslo/Kristiania on or about 20 April 1906.

That record indicates that Martine's "maiden name" was either Olsen or Olsdatter and that the family had resided in Porsgrunn, Telemark before they emigrated stating their intention to go to Wisconsin.

Father Harald appears to have sailed from that port a year earlier. No indication of Pedersen/Peterson name.

He states intention to go to New York so perhaps the passenger manifest of arrival at that port will give you additional information.
