Christophersons buried in Pisgah cemetery

I've been curious about the Christopherson family members who are buried in Pisgah Cemetery (in Carroll County), where many of my own family are buried. The Christophersons include Conrod S. Christopherson (1863-1953), Mary V. Christopherson (1862-1948, wife of Conrod), Christopher C. Christopherson (1852-1907), Susan E. Christopherson (1859-1918, wife of Christopher), and Mary S. Christopherson (1886-1899, dau. of Christopher and Susan). Presumably, the two males were brothers and were probably immigrants from some Scandinavian country -- most likely Sweden -- since some spellings of their surname include "Christofferson." More than fifty years passed from the year that 13-y-o Mary S. died (1899) until the year that Conrod died (1953), and since they are both buried there in that cemetery, then the entire family must have made Carroll County their home for more than half a century, undoubtedly accumulating many local friends and acquaintances while residing there.

Does anyone know where these people came from and if they have any descendants? I am not related to these people, but I am intrigued by the presence of the remains of an early Scandinavian family in a predominantly Scots-Irish cemetery in rural Mississippi.
