  • Family sources give me the name as Narcissus, which is how her grandmother spelled her name.  But I find it in some genealogies as Narcissa.  And this is the spelling used on her gravestone in Hopewell Cemetery, Dryfork, Pittsylvania County, Virginia.  Her grave also reports her nickname Sissie, which I find in various sources, as well as Narcissie, as in the 1880 census.  1880 Federal Census, Pittsylvania County, Virginia, 14 June, District 175, Tunstall Magisterial District, page 28, Hse/Fam # 252 Green, James W M 37 Farmer NC NC NC Green, Hannah W F 38  Wife Keeping House VA VA VA Green, Narsisie W F 4 Dau VA NC VA  Narcissus' grave information reports the years of her birth and death.  Her death was ion 1916, the year following her mother's death.  A genealogy reported the exact date of death, 29 May 1916.  I found that the grave reports her birth year was 1881.  But she is reported in the 1880 census as already being 4 years old at that time.
