The Ancestry transcribers saw the name as Lopalowska but you will notice the person who wrote the manifest, at the Port of Departure, did not cross their Ts

They are lines 14 and 15

No the mother's birthplace is listed as Wielka

Notice to the left of their names are the letters SI, which meant they were detained at the port of Philadelphia for a Special Inquiry. Those pages were not included in the Ancestry database, but one may suspect they were detained as they did not have tickets (train) to their destination. Or with Francezka being a widow perhaps they questioned whether or not she could provide for herself and her daughter. We may speculate that they were detained until her Son in Law came for them
