To answer the question of whether Snedkerstuen is a farm or a family name, I went to the 1865 census for Nord-Fron area of Oppland. Then listed the names of all farms and Snedkerstuen is a farm there. Looked at the people living there at the time of the 1865 census - matches some of the people you were looking for.
