    Father:  Elijah Hamrick
    Mother:  Emeline Webb

    In the 1880 census, E J's mother E Hamrick is living in the household,giving us E J's maiden name Hamrick.

    1880 Federal Census, Cleveland County, North Carolina, 1 June,Township 7, Sandy Run, District 71, page 1 (Scan 569A), Hse/Family #4

    E J McSwain W F 20 Wife House Keeper  NC NC NC [b abt 1860]
    J B McSwain W M 11 Son NC NC NC [b abt 1869]
    E Hamrick W F 47 Mother-in-Law Widow NC NC NC [b abt 1833]

    The Hamrick genealogy cited above tells us Narcissus was called ElizaJane, giving her name as Narcissus "Eliza Jane" Hamrick.  This matchesthe 1880 entry for E J McSwain.  The 1900 census reports her, though,as Louisa J McSwain.  Her mother is living in the household in thelast two censuses, designated as mother-in-law, so we are sure EJ andLouisa are the same person.  Some genealogies say her nickname wasLiza Jane.  This may explain where the Louisa came from.  Theenumerator might have heard Liza Jane as Louisa Jane.
