Amanda (Jönsson) Rossi lived in Sweden.

Amanda Jönsson was born November 15, 1863 in Maria Magdalena. [1] Parents were worker Sven Jönsson and Stina Greta Johansdotter, 36 years old.

Amanda left home in 1879 to work as a maid on the same street where she had been living with her mother. She was later listed as a tobacco worker and as a factory worker.

Amanda married Napoleon Generosi, an Italian salesman living in Sweden, in 1884. Their oldest child, son Anton, was born the month prior to the marriage and lived for only 2 months. According to the Stockholm Roteman archive, they spent some time in Italy before returning to Stockholm in 1886 but uncertain if this refers to both or only to her husband. The family lived at Lilla Glasbruksgatan 16. By 1895, the couple had separated, and Amanda was living in the household of Luigi Antonio Rossi with her children, apart from son Romeo who was at school.

In the 1900 and 1910 census, Amanda is listed as housekeeper in the Rossi family. As Luigi Rossi was the father of Amanda's younger children and later become her second husband, "housekeeper" was likely used as a euphemism. In the 1910 census, her first husband (N. G.) was listed as divorced. Amanda and Luigi Rossi married in 1922, after the death of her first husband the previous year. She died in 1926.
