Looking for cousin Hannah

I am the gggrand-daughter of Jorgen (JP) Hemmingsen. He came to the Newell, Iowa area from Praesto, Denmark in 1885. From information in a Grand Forks County North Dakota History Book, it states that he had a cousin, Hannah, and her family already living in Newell. I have no other information about this Hannah.
After JP arrived in Newell, his brothers Ferdinand and Jens, father Hemming Jensen, half brother Niels, half sister Anna, and future wife Maren Hansen came later. I'm trying to locate any other family that might have come from Denmark and family that stayed in Denmark.
I know that this family had ties to a Nain Lutheran Church. I'm wondering if that church still exists.
