Looking for John Norberg living in Atwater 1949

Surnames: Stjarnberg, Norberg, Lundström
My grandfather's twin brother, Johan Stjärnberg, emigrated to USA from Östra Broby, Sweden, arriving in New York on July 10, 1902. He was born Dec 5, 1883.
The Ellis Island shipping manifest states he was going to "son Axel Lundstrom", Kandiyohi.
The next known facts come from a letter he sent to his younger brother, dated 19 December 1949 saying his address was John Norberg, Atwater, Minnesota.
I don't know if he changed his name to John Norberg or if he possibly worked for somebody by that name. The letter indicated he had been in WWI, that he was married and had sons. No names were given for his wife, who he said was very sick and not expected to live much longer, or his sons. The letter also indicated he had his own place (farm?) in 1949 and that his youngest son lived with him at that time.
I have not been able to find any trace of him after New York and would greatly appreciate any information about Johan Stjarnberg/John Norberg or any descendants.
