Anders Mattson LUNDGREN & Märta (Martha) PERSDOTTER from Sweden

I am hoping to learn what became of Anders Mattsson LUNDGREN (from Västerförnebo, Västmanland, Sweden), and his family, who emigrated first to New Zealand, then to the United States.

Here's the info I have:

Anders Mattsson LUNDGREN, b. 25 May 1834, Västerförnebo, Västmanland, Sweden.

Anders married 13 Mar 1870, Vestre Aker, Christiania (Oslo), Norway, Märta (Martha) PERSDOTTER, b. 03 Sep 1848, Ny, Värmland, Sweden.

Anders and Märta had the following children in Norway:

#01 (M) Richard LUNDGREN, b. 23 Jun 1870, Vestre Aker, Christiania (Oslo), Norway.

#02 (M) Karl Eskild Konstantin LUNDGREN, 24 Jul 1871, Vestre Aker, Christiania (Oslo), Norway.

The family then emigrated from Norway to New Zealand, aboard the "Høvding", departing Oslo, Norway, on 31 May 1872, and arriving at Napier, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, on 01 Sep 1872.

The family settled at Norsewood, Tararua, New Zealand.

Anders and Märta had the following children in New Zealand:

#03 (M) Oscar LUNDGREN, b. c. 1874, New Zealand; d. c. 1874, New Zealand.

#04 (M) Oscar Fredrik LUNDGREN, b. 09 Feb 1875, New Zealand; d. ? (possibly in the United States).

#05 (F) Albertina Wilhelmina LUNDGREN, b. c. 1876, New Zealand; d. c. 1876, New Zealand.

#06 (M) Georg LUNDGREN, b. c. 1878, New Zealand; d. c. 1882, New Zealand.

#07 (M) William LUNDGREN, b. c. 1879, New Zealand; d. c. 1882, New Zealand.

#08 (F) Hilda LUNDGREN, b. c. 1881, New Zealand; d. ? (possibly in the United States).

#09 (M) George William LUNDGREN, b. c. 1883, New Zealand; d. c. 1884, New Zealand.

#10 (M) Willie Walker (or Willie Walter) LUNDGREN, b. c. 1885, New Zealand; d. c. 1886, New Zealand.

The LUNDGREN children attended Norsewood School. Hilda's last day of school was 22 Oct 1888, and her school records note that she was leaving for America.

I would like to know what became of the family after they left New Zealand.
