Hi. Just to recap - You need a marriage record and parents for John Frederick Petersen (born in Denmark on June 24, 1864) and Marie Christana Olsen (born in Denmark in 1864). Did a search for you on, Dansk Demografik Database, and Family Search. Collected some census information along the way. Sounds like you have it, but doesn't hurt to post it.

At the bottom is a possible immigration for Marie. Very iffy.

Marie Christine Olsen is a common name in Denmark. If she traveled alone (sounds like she did or you are not sure), then it is hard to identify her by way of her companions. Below is one possibility - but the match is not exact - and there is no special way to identify her.
