The "Johnsdr" looks like an abbreviated patronym. If you're planning to create a profile for her on WikiTree, please enter the full patronym in the "Last Name At Birth" (LNAB) field as "Johnsdatter" or "Johnsdotter".

Whether she's Norwegian, Danish or Swedish doesn't matter much in this context, but I'll recommend that you read "How to enter Norwegian names in WikiTree" anyway. Much of it applies to old Scandinavian naming practice in general.
