Johnson & Peterson, 1871 to 1888

I am looking for information about the following people:
Johan Gustaf Johansson (Gust Johnson), came to US about 1871, settled in the Scranton or Carbondale area. Gust died about 1882 or 1883, cause unknown. Looking for grave location & cause of death of Gust Johnson.
Anna Carlsdotter Johansson (Annie Johnson), wife of Gust Johnson, came to US about 1873 with son Carl Oskar born 1871. Four other children born, Ida Sophia, Frank, Victor, and Gust Jr. Looking for birth notices on any of the children.
August Pettersson, (my great-grandfather August Peterson), came to US about 1883, worked in Scranton coal mines about 6 to 10 months, went to Colorado to look for gold or to work on the railway. He returned to Osage county about 1885, married widow Anna Johnson early 1885. Daughter Alma Peterson born 15 Sept 1885. August and Anna sold the Johnson 80 acres to someone named Anderson for $2,000 in very early 1886, moved to Pawnee county, KS. Looking for marriage documentation on August & Anna, birth notice on Alma.
Christina Elizabeth (Stina Lisa) Peterson, mother of August Peterson, arrived about 1883 to 1885 from Sweden. Bought a house & lived in Osage City with daughter Hilda, age about 16 at time they left Sweden, and another daughter, age 2 at time of leaving Sweden, who was a half-sister, by a second marriage to someone named Lundberg, of August Peterson and Hilda Peterson. Seeking information on death of Christina about 1912 to 1916 and her place of burial, information on Hilda's marriage (she went to Pawnee county with her husband about the same time August went in 1886), and information about the younger half-sister and who she married.
Thanks for any help.
