Hello Ms. Raetz,
Thank you for contacting the History Hub regarding your relative in Guatemala. I took a look on ancestry.com and found that her husband (JN Bickal) filed a passport application for their protection in Sept 1897, Emergency Passport Applications (Issued Abroad), 1877-1907. She and her child with the family name Bickal are listed on the application. I am not sure where they are after that time. I would encourage you to search passenger lists. Or look for the husband in his home area of Oakland, CA as noted on the application. Or, familysearch.org has a great Guatemala wiki page for genealogy research.
I hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research.
