Need help finding Danish immigrants

I need help finding where my family arrived in America and what ship they may have been on.
Christian Jensen Aalborg (born 1833) arrived in the U.S. around 1865 with his wife Sophia Marie and two sons Abraham and Charles. Their third son, Aaron, was born in Racine, Wisconsin about 1870. I learned this from Aaron's obituary. It also said they stayed in Wisconsin until about 1875 when they left for Turner County, South Dakota. I have been unable to find any records of them in Wisconsin or anywhere else besides South Dakota. I found a passport record for their son Nathan. It says that his father, Christian, was born in Denmark and that he emigrated to the U.S. from the port of Aalborg about 1866. This is about all I've been able to find on their arrival. I think that Jensen was their original surname. I believe they took the surname, Aalborg, when they arrived in South Dakota. They did this I think because their was another Christian Jensen living in the same town when they came to South Dakota. I can't prove this yet,but, I've been told by family that Aalborg was not the original name. Hope someone can help.
