Looking for Info on one 'Emily Tuala-Togaloa' (?)

Classification: Query
A Samoan lady who went to Fiji and married a Fijian chief from the chiefly village of Somosomo in Taveuni, Fiji, circa 1920. All we have from anecdotal evidence was that she was (perhaps) part-German and that she came from Savaii. She was known in Fiji as 'Emily Tuala (or Tualua)Togaloa. We are guessing that her maiden name was probably Emily Tuala-Togaloa. Not being experts in Samoan naming conventions (we are from Fiji) we are not sure how the name would/should hang together in Samoan.

Emily had two sons who are considered senior chiefs in their own right who are now deceased but passed very little information onto their offspring. Nothing more was ever heard of Emily and we are keen to find out more. There are several chiefs in Fiji with Samoan blood connexions (just as there are many with Tongan connexions).

Any leads or information appreciated.
