BJERKE family, Walsh county

I am searching for the family of Carl, Olaf H. and Axel Bjerke (brothers of my grandfather). They were born in Svarthus, a small farm in Nes parish in Akershus, Norway, later on the family moved to Björkelia, another small farm in the same parish.
Carl (or Karl) was born in 1881 an went to America about 1900. 1910 he lived in Glenwood township, Walsh county/ND. Wife: Mary (or Marie). He probably moved to another county in ND, I can't find him in the lists of 1920.
Olaf Hermann was born in 1882, he came to America in 1906. Wife: Olivia. About 1920 he lived in Tiber township, Walsh county/ND.
Axel (or Aksel) was born 1885, he probably came to America in 1906. Wife: Ida (from Sweden?). About 1920 he lived in Tiber Township, Walsh county/ND.
My grandfather's name was Haakon, he married Lilli Strömsaether an took the surename Strömsaether. My father, Helge, was the oldest son of Haakon an Lilli.
Does anyone know anything about this Bjerke famliy? Please contact me!
PS I am living in Basel/Switzerland
