Gusta Lien b.1897 (Pope County,MN) Another Mystery!!

Hello everyone,
I have found myself a new mystery. While tracking down a mysterious great aunt, I have found a mysterious child of hers.

According to the 1900 federal Census for Langhei, MN, M.K (Mathias a.k.a Martin K) Lien and his wife, Magrete (nee Swenstad/Svenstad) had a daughter, Gusta born May 1897. In 1901 Martin dies in Pope County, 1905 MN census loses the family. 1910 I find Gusta's brothers (Carl and Melvin) living with Magrete's brother in North Dakota. Gusta is no where to be found.

So my question is two-fold. Could anyone help me verify Gusta's birth in Pope County in May 1897 and where she was between 1901 and 1910? Did she die also? Mathias' brother Ole K (1866) was living with them in 1900, but when found in 1910, Gusta not with them.

Can anyone help?
Thank you!
Mary
