Sorensen/Hansen clan--Denmark to Nebraska

My grandfather, Rasmus Soren Sorensen, was born in Tanderup, Onsbjerg, Samsoe, about 1856; his parents were Soren Sorensen and Barbara Sorensdatter. Rasmus'wife was Karen Hansen; her parents were Martin (Morten?) and Christine Hansen. Karen immigrated to the USA in 1884 (and I think so did her parents). Rasmus immigrated to the USA in 1885. I have a record showing Rasmus living in his family home in Onsbjerg in the 1870 Samsoe census. The next record I have of him is living on Battrup Way in Arhus in 1880. Then he emigrated to the USA in 1885. And the last record I have of him is in the 1930 census for Nance County, Genoa Village, NE, USA, when he is 73 years old. Can anyone fill in the missing links? I am particularly interested in finding Rasmus' immigration records and some kind of record for Karen Hansen and her family while they were still in Denmark.
