Molly Fall and Emma Larson

Anna Walli's half-sisters, Malena ("Molly") Fall and Ingeborg ("Emma") Larson, also emigrated from Rissa. The family names they chose to use in America is typical of many immigrants. In Norway, it was Føll. Molly chose an Americanized version: Fall. Emma, on the other hand, used the common "patronymic" naming system, based on her father's name (Lars): Larson
