Gove, Stowell, Drinkard and Nichols
The family of Jay Gove (1877-1957), his wife Katherine Hengell Gove (1880-1956), and children Kathryn Ione Gove (1899-1940), Jay Paul "Bud" Gove (1901-1959), and Richard Frederick "Tod" Gove (1902-1956) settled at Roy, MT in 1910. Jay and Katherine were in the Lewistown area until some time in theearly 1950's. Jay was a storekeeper for the railroad. Kathryn Ione married Charles L. Scott and lived in Lewistown until her death in 1940. She was a musician (singer) and burial was in the Lewistown Cemetery.
Emery Paul Stowell (1870-1957) settled in
Gilt Edge before 1902. He married Ethel Lena Drinkard (1877-1984) at Lewistown in
Enoch "Marvin" Drinkard
(1868-1882) - brother of Ethel Lena Drinkard above - and his wife, Marian
"Olive" Drinkard (1882-1965) were also early settlers in the Lewistown
area. Marvin was a school teacher at Gilt Edge for 12 months in 1900 (source was a
bio called "DRINKARD FAMILY HISTORY" found in a book called "The Heritage
Book of Central Montana"). D.M. Drinkard is listed on the Gilt Edge School Web
page and I believe that "D" must be a mistake and should be "E".
Marvin later lived at Piper.
Dr. George H. Nichols (about
1856/8-1936) and Florence Geneva Drinkard Nichols (1859-1937) - sister of Ethel Lena
Drinkard Stowell - also lived at Lewistown with their children:
