The following family is from Sør-Trøndelag fylke, where Trondheim is. Øksendal is in a different fylke.

Geni tree. Not complete enough info in this thread or in the tree to confirm whether this is your Sather family, but it seems to be. There might be a tree on Ancestry as well...

Other siblings could be followed. For example, in 1910 Richard was in Edmonds, Washington; then to Everett, Washington; to Petersburg, Alaska in 1930; died 1949 in Santa Barbara, California
