Hi kypaige22, a nice note from you, but doesn't answer questions or provide additional information. I think it would be a good idea to check the connections a bit more. By what means do you know it's the same family? As far as this thread goes, the evidence is not in.

What is your starting point - your best known person? Maybe a sibling of Roy's? (You say Roy is your great-great uncle, so his sibling is your ancestor). Marie Larsen Parrish maybe?

An Ancestry tree has this:

Ole Kristian Larsen b 15 Dec 1866 in Norway**, d 6 Jan 1921 in Trenton, New Jersey, USA
Josefine Nathalie Knudsen b 16 Nov 1866 in Norway, d 26 Oct 1896 in Norway
with 3 children listed:
1) Roy William Larsen b 25 Mar 1887 Fredrickstad Norway, d 13 Apr 1921 Boston, Mass, USA
2) Marie Larsen b 8 Dec 1888 Fredickstad, d 8 July 1964 Long Beach, California, USA
3) Victoria Terese Larsen b 3 Mar 1891 Fredrickstad, Norway d 1977 in Denmark

Family tree says Marie married William Parrish in Seattle in 1916.
No spouse mentioned for Roy or Victoria.
** see note at bottom re Ole birth source

Marie's birth date and birth place on the family tree seem about right:
Norway, Select Baptisms on Ancestry
Marie Larsen

Baptism Place: Vestre Fredrikstad, Østfold, Norway
Father: Ole Kristian Larsen
Mother: Josefine Nathalie Knudsen

The Ole Christian Larsen in the family in Norway posted in this thread was born 1860 - a six year discrepancy.

Maybe Roy in 1907:
