Norwegian Heritage website information on ship Cameo:

http://www.norwayheritage.com/p_ship.asp?sh=cameo

(This is probably the ship John O., Mette and Marie Eline took from Norway to London.

Note the ship's ports of call in 1889.)

 

Note there are two Cameo salings in July; Grandma said they left home July 7, 1889.

Information on the Wilson Line, owners of the Cameo:

http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/lines/wilson.html

 

As of January 2012 was unable to find information on the ship that took them from England to America. Grandma K noted in the interview with Glen and me in 1980 that they came through Castle Garden, NY, rather than Ellis Island.
