Great Aunt Eleonore Eugenie Therese Bergerson

My aunt came to North Dakota from Kristiania in April 1905. She boarded the Montebello as Eleonore Hansen (her maiden name was Larsen). When she changed ships in England, she used the name Bergerson. I assumed it might be the name of the young man she was to marry. She travelled with Otilie and Ludwig Sorensen (who settled in Souris, ND) and Isak Hansen. All four fares were paid for by Isak Hansen's son, Karl Isaksen/son. I was able to obtain a copy of her declaration of record for naturalization. She signed it in Ward County, ND, on October of 1905. From that point, I've lost her. Grandma said she went to Hope, ND and married into the Hilton family. I don't know how true that is. Eleonore was born in Kristiania on March 23, 1883 and had two sisters, Laura and Akseline (she died in 1917). Grandma Laura came to America shortly after Akseline's death and brought up one of her two daughter, Mimi Marie Jacobsen. Margit Viktoria died in Norway in 1918, as did her father, Otto M. Jacobsen.

I would like to find Eleonore's information and possible family members. Many thanks for any help! Mary
