Ada for young girls in the 1870s & 1880s?

Classification: Query
Was there anything in particular going on in Ada during the 1870s & 1880s that would bring 2 young Norwegian girls (ages 13 & approx. 18 years) all the way from Dane County, WI to Ada by themselves? Their father and siblings (mother was dead) stayed behind in WI.

I know it's possible that they came to live with relatives---and I'm trying to figure out if that's the case. I just wondered if there was anything in particular going on in Ada at the time that might've brought them there.
