Gunder Peterson, Hale, Trempealeau

I'm looking for information about Gunder Pederson/Peterson and his family who lived in on a farm in Hale,​ Trempealeau,​ Wisconsin.
Gunder was born in Elverum, Norway in 16.09.1851 before he emigrated to America in 1883. On 28.05.1885 he married Eline Mattson/Mathison, born 1847 in Norway or Sweden, emigrated 1876.
They had a daughter, Mina Beate/Minnie, who was born in 1889.
Eline died in 1922 and Gunder was buried from the Chimney Rock church on the 5th of February 1931.

Gunder was my great grandfather's uncle. My great grandfather was called Bernt Olsen Graabergsveen (born 1888) and he emigrated to the US in 1907, one year after his brother Paul (born 1886) had gone the same way. We have no idea where they settled, but on the immigration form they filled in that they were going to visit their uncle in Strum, Wisconsin. The Graabergsveen name is pretty unique, so they most likely used Olsen, which is pretty common.

So, if anyone knows more about the Peterson/Pederson family from Hale, their daugther, where they lived etc, please don't hesitate to contact me.
