Hanna Froslie b. 1863 Norway

Classification: Query
I am searching for information about Hanna Christoffersdatter Engebretsen, born 6th January 1863 in Norway, who emigrated to Minnesota in 1882. I found a Hanna Froslie in several censuses and records, who immigrated in 1882 and was born around 1863. But I find no marriage record which would indicate what her maiden name is. Her husband is Norwegian born Olaus Froslie (the names have various spellings in the different Ancestry records) and he must have married Hanna about 1884. Would be delighted if anyone could find a marriage record for this couple, or give me any more information on Hanna's origins.
