NoteHarriet is in the 1910 census at Alameda, Oakland, with Charles (listed as C.W.) and Jessie.

In the 1920 census at Oakland, California, she is at 912 18th Street, Charles W. Nisbet, age 43, single, and a linotype operator. With him is his mother Harriet, Widow, age 75. Charlie Nisbet seems to have come to the U.S. in 1900 and she in 1904.

In the 1930 census 'William' appears to be at King, Kirkland, Washington. He is a magazine publisher...perhaps not such a stretch from linotype operator...with a wife Josephine. He is 52 and she is 53. She was born in Minnesota and he in Canada.

This is likely Charles W. Nisbet.

The April 20, 1925, edition of the Oakland Tribune carries an article relating to the 80th birthday celebration of Harriet and shows her photo. It was held at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H.H. 'McGray' (sic) (McGary) at 5756 Shafter Avenue. Present at the celebration is Harriet's daughter, Jessie Nisbet. Mrs. H.H. McGary is Myrtle Viola Nisbet.

Harriet's date of death is taken from a California death index. Find-a-Grave provides the location of Harriet and Jessie's graves.
