If you are the father, the minute that the mother went to jail, you should have gotten custody of your children. If the mother (assuming she is the custodial parent) is incarcerated, then the non-custodial parent should file for an emergency hearing and get custody of the children. State lines are not as important as the welfare of the children.

Absolutely not - the child's needs do not stop upon the death of the custodial parent. And, unless designated in a custody order and/or Will, the child does not automatically go to the other parent. The mother can designate anyone as guardian of the child, or if not designated, the child goes to her relatives or state family services. see link
