Need help finding Ingeborg Amundsdatter b. 1866 at Kvam, Nord Fron, emigration?

North Dakota information: Inga Amundson, born 12 July 1866 in Gudbrandsdalen married to Louis/Ludvig Stokmo/Stockmoe and lived in Traill County. On the censuses it says she emigrated in 1887 from Norway. On the 1930 census her name is Ingeborg. She married March 1, 1892 in Traill county, North Dakota.

So, in Norway I found a good match for her,

name: Ingeborg Amundsen
gender: Female
baptism/christening date: 29 Jul 1866
baptism/christening place: KVAM,OPLAND,NORWAY
birth date: 12 Jul 1866
father: Amund Iversen from Korstadsløkken øvre in Sør-Fron.
Mother: Sigri Johnsdatter, whose parents were at Vigsøien in Kvam, Nord Fron.

The problem I have, is that I cannot find the emigration of Ingeborg Amundsdatter. I feel like I need something to match up with that woman in North Dakota, besides the birthdate and Gudbrandsdalen. She would have been 20 or 21 when she emigrated.

I also have no idea what happened to Ingeborg's mother Sigri, after Ingeborg was born.

Here is Ingeborg Amundsdatter on the 1875 census with her maternal grandparents:

Census year: 1875
Municipality: Nord-Fron
Municipality number: 0518
Name of domicile: Vigsøien
Number of persons in this domicile: 7

Rønaug Johannesdatter Datter til Mari Johnsdatter 1870 Kvam N. Fron
Oline Kristiansdatter Rønaug Johnsdatter Datter 1874 Kvam N. Fron

I do know that Ingeborg Amundsdatter's father Amund Iversen Korstadsløkken øvre stayed in Norway, married twice and had several children.
