Interested in the name of Stopsen?

I'm a Stopsen located in the Washington State area. There is a whole clan of them that live in the Aberdeen Washington area.

My grandfather (Rudolf Richard Stopsen (Rudy) born 11-26-1904 in Vasa Finland) Rudy immigrated to the USA from Christina, Norway arriving in New York in later part of March 1916 at the age of 12. He sailed aboard the Oscar II vessel and received his US citizenship papers on 3-7-1961. Came to the US then moved toRochester/Oakville Washington area to work in a logging camp.

Father: Arvid Richard Stopsen born in Finland 6-6-1877, died in Rock Springs Colorado in 1948.
Mother: Hilda Sofia (Sophie) Ronu (Ronn) born on 4-21-1880 in Finland
