Since it looks like the sister may have gone to Polk county, Minnesota, I checked for all Norwegians on the 1880 census in Minnesota whose names started with Hart, and I found an interesting entry:

82177 Hartwig K Hendrickson m 33 f N N N 356 Fisher Polk Minnesota

82178 Mena Hendrickson f 33 N N N 356 Fisher Polk Minnesota

82179 Ole H Hendrickson m 8 Mn N N 356 Fisher Polk Minnesota

82180 Edward Hendrickson m 7 Mn N N 356 Fisher Polk Minnesota

82181 Hendrick Hendrickson m 3 Mn N N 356 Fisher Polk Minnesota

82182 Julius Hendrickson m 1 Mn N N 356 Fisher Polk Minnesota

this looks like a good match on the 1880 Norwegians in Minnesota census, for Peder Myre Henricks.

76298 Inger Henricks f 45 N N N 101 Sverdrup Ottertail Minnesota

76299 Poul Henricks m 6 Mn N N 101 Sverdrup Ottertail Minnesota

76300 Amalie Henricks f 4 Mn N N 101 Sverdrup Ottertail Minnesota

76301 Henrik Henricks m 1 Mn N N 101 Sverdrup Ottertail Minnesota

There are historical societies for both of those counties that you could contact. Otter Tail is the county, Sverdrup must be the township. It refers to both Hartwig and Peder as farmers. It they came as early as 1869, it is possible that they were here in Minnesota early enough to be original homesteaders, at least in those areas. Their names should be on the land records, homestead records.

A quick search at ancestry.com for the name Peder Henricks shows that a Peder M. Henricks is living in Kittson county, Minnesota in 1895.

The land patent and the description of it is on this website:

http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/visitors/StateResearch.asp

At the top menu bar it says Search Land Patents, click there.

After you put in your postal code, then you can search
Henricks Peder

It will show you the records, plus there are tabs again and you can see the land description and the actual document.

Here's something interesting. When living in Kittson, if this is the same Peder M. Hendricks, he served in the Minnesota Legislature.
