Following up on George's suggestion there is a family tree attached, where there is a suggested marriage record for the couple attached to Jennie Amanda's profile.

"New York, New York City Marriage Records, 1829-1940," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:244R-7L9 : 10 February 2018), Carl August Anderson and Jeanna Amanda Johnson, 04 Apr 1887; citing Marriage, Manhattan, New York, New York, United States, New York City Municipal Archives, New York; FHL microfilm 1,556,698.

Unfortunately the attached image is "broken"

This record gives her name as Jeanna Amanda Johnson, estimated birth year 1866, birth place Gotheubury, Sweden, parents Petrus Jimsons and Augusta Anderson.

Gotheubury should in all likelihood properly be Gothenburg (or Göteborg, in Swedish).

Looking into the records in Sweden, there was a Jeanna Amanda born in Göteborg 14 November 1866 to workman Petrus Jonsson Tausson and his wife Augusta Andreasdotter.

Göteborgs Gustavi eller Domkyrkoförsamlings kyrkoarkiv, Födelse- och dopböcker, SE/GLA/13180/C/12 (1865-1871), bildid: 00192802_00140 Nr 1016 https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/00192802_00140

She has first been entered as Jeanna Amalia, but Amalia is crossed out and replaced with Amanda.

This Jeanna Amanda Tausson left for America  in March 1887 - just in time to marry in New York in April.

Göteborgs Kristine församlings kyrkoarkiv, Husförhörslängder, SE/GLA/13187/A I b/3 (1883-1889), bildid: 00065564_00042, sida 1043, Nr 13 https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/00065564_00042

I am not surprised that the uncommon surname Tausson has been mistranscribed (or misrecorded) as Johnson.
