Peterson, Lundberg, migrated in 1880 to Osage City

Looking for information on my great-grandfather's mother, sister, and half-sister.
August Peterson, my great-grandfather, was born 15 Dec 1857 in Brevik Parish, Sweden. He came to the U.S. leaving Goteborg Port on 11 April 1880 with Osage City named as his destination.
My great-great-grandmother was Christina Lisa Svensdotter. She was married to Petter Pettersson, who died in 1868 in Sweden. In 1877, she married Johan August Lundberg (b. 31 Jan 1849), but was separated or divorced from him by 1880. Christina and her two daughters migrated to the U.S., leaving Goteborg port on 23 July 1880, and came to Osage City, and Lundberg migrated to the U.S. in November 1882 for New York, but no other information was heard about him after that date.
Christina was born 27 January 1838 and my notes indicate she died at Osage City at an unknown date.
Her daughters names were Hulda Gottfrieda Pettersdotter, b. 1 August 1864, and Ellen Maria Lundberg, b. 1 April 1878.

Looking for information for the following people:
* Hulda Gottfrieda Peterson or Pettersdotter - may have married someone named Klasson while living at Osage City. Also, may have been previously married to someone else from there, who died on a trip to Sweden. After Osage City, she lived in Garfield, Pawnee county Kansas about 1886, and was living as Hulda Klasson in San Pedro, California in 1927.
* Ellen Maria Lundberg (may also be known as Peterson), married sometime after 1896 or 1898, and living in San Francisco in 1927.
* August Peterson was married - about 1883? - to Annie or Anna Cajsa Carlsdotter Johansson or Johnson (widow).
* Christina Lisa Peterson or Lundberg - did she remarry?

Hoping to find -
Marriage records with accurate dates in area of Osage City for the above names.
Declarations of Intent to Naturalize, and dates of Naturalizaation for all of the above. August Peterson's naturalization may be around 1885-1886. Also looking for Christina's and possibly Hulda's.
Death date and location of burial for Christina in Osage City.
Also would like to know which church they attended, and where those records are located.
