Looking for WHAT records specifically?

Her marriage record to Otto Ludvig Kristofersen in Vestre Aker church, Oslo, Norway 8 Dec 1872 lists her as (widow) Olava Petrea Jakobine Jensdatter. Various entries for her online list various birth years but most agree with the 26 March.

Her actual birth/baptism record shows her to have been born 26 Mar 1842 -

A US county often recorded where a person who died in that county was buried. You should start with research in the records of her county of death.

Otto appears in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 US censuses in Idaho. Checking those will answer your question about him. It also appears that his death record is listed in the free databases of the FamilySearch.org website.
