Andersen, Bengta/Bungta - early 1800s

Looking for any family of Bengta/Bungta Andersen who married a Hansen in the general area of Sioux City, Iowa in the early 1800s. One son, Andrew, was born in this area June 3, 1850. Not sure if Andrews brother, Walter, or sister, Anna, were born here or after the family returned to Denmark probably in the early 1850s. Bengta returned from Denmark with the children around 1865 to the same general area of Iowa/Nebraska that they left, probably had family there. After staying in this area for a (few?) years, the went to Utah for awhile. Andrew went further West and Walter and Anna returned to this area to a small (now non-existant) town of Admah after a short stay in Utah, again probably because family was there. Bengta didn't return with them (possibly died). Walter was killed in a farming accident sometime after returning to the Admah area.
