Emigration from Telemark May 1853

Classification: Query
Surnames: Torgrimsen, Moen, Kjetilsdatter, Fosse
Anders Torgrimsen Moen and his new bride, Anlaug Kjetilsdatter Fosse were married on 16 May 1853 in Hjartdal. Anders utflytte from Heddal between 7 May and the 16th when he got married. Their home farms were just barely on opposite sides of the parish line. I am trying to find their port of departure and ship. They made it to Dodge County, Minnesota before 25 March 1854, when my 2GGrandmother (Anlaug Anderson Moen) was born. They probably would have traveled with a group of neighbors. Does anyone have relatives taht emigrated at this time? I am guess Kragerø as a port, based on proximity. Thanks for any help!
