On 1 June 1900 the U.S. census in Silver Bow, Montana, U.S.A identified a silver miner named William Nankivell, his wife Grace and 3 children Sarah, William J. and Elsie. Grace was very pregnant with their 4th child and on 15 June 1900 she delivered a daughter - named Elizabeth Jane. Sadly, less than a year later, William died on 9 June 1901 and he was buried in Mount Moriah cemetery, Silver Bow, Montana. Grace, now a widow has her 4 children - Sarah [age under 8], William J. [age 6], Elsie [age under 4] and the baby [age 1]. I am aware of a report from the Anaconda Standard of 24 December 1901 - where a Judge granted a petition of 2 men [Benn. Annear and J.H. Williams ] as guardians of Grace Nankivell, an insane person to invest $1,000 for the benefit of Mrs. Nankivell's 4 minor children. According to the petition of the guardians, the unfortunate woman is in the asylum and the children are distributed among the homes of relatives and friends. The father of the children, William Nakivell, deceased, left an estate valued at about $2,000, consisting of of a house and lot at Walkerville, Montana. There are $557 in approved claims against the estate, and the guardians asked the Court's permission to take them up and expend $25 a month for the maintenance of the children. Court granted the request. A sad situation. I had no idea at this point who the 2 guardians are/were. I'm now looking into the family of Grace and the children. I couldn't locate them in 1910 U.S.census and the reason was they were no longer in the U.S. 1911 census - Grace [a widow] and 3 children [William J age 15, Elsie age 13 and Elizabeth age 10] are living on St. Day Road, Carharrack, Scorrier, Cornwall. Grace has no occupation, has no impairments and cannot sign the schedule. William is aMiner [below ground] and the 2 girls are in school. The eldest daughter is transcribed as Evelyn and is working as a Servant for Henry Jory of Sparry Bottom, Carharrack, Scorrier, Cornwall. I cannot find their return to England and given her supposed "mental health" issues I'm curious how this return might have occurred? Grace [Bullen] had left England in May 1888 and married William in the U.S. 19 July 1888. She had 2 sisters - Emily and Bessie. I' working on those 2. Her parents died in Cornwall - father Nicholas [2nd q. 1910] and mother Jane [Bray] 4th q. 1911.
