Joseph and Rose Benda

Looking for any info on Joseph and Rose BENDA, my great great grandparents. Born in the early 1830s, married around 1854. They lived in Sumner Twnshp, Winneshiek Co. and Utica Twnshp, Chickasaw Co. in the 1860s & 70s, near Spillville. They came to America in Sept. 1861 from Bohemia, arrived in Baltimore I believe. Homesteaded in Brule Co. SD in 1881 or 1882. They had a family of 9 children, I believe. Curious if they ever owned any land in Iowa, and also wondering if Ignatz BENDA, arrived in U.S. around 1853, was Joseph's brother. Thought I saw something once that indicated this, but not certain. Joseph's mother Kate is listed living with them in the 1880 Census, age 72, but can't find anything else on her. Wondering if she came to the U.S. before or after them with other family. It looks like there were many Bendas that lived in Winneshiek Co. and curious how or if they were all related. Thank you for any info
