She was the daughter of Elisha and Margaret "Peggy" (Elmore) Eudaly, natives of Charlotte Co., Virginia. She grew up in Kentucky and (possibly in Shelby Co., Indiana) and in Marion Co., Indiana. She married Charles G. Featherston August 21, 1838 in Marion Co. Charles was a cousin to her as his grandmother was Lucy (Elmore) Featherston.

She was the mother of 14 children: Eliza Jane (Featherston) Green Penrose, Nancy Ellen (Featherston) Bradfield, Jeremiah, Charles, Narcissa Syvila (Featherston) Johnson, Margaret F. (Featherston) Campbell, Maria (Featherston) Bradfield, Elizabeth (Featherston) Adkins, Andrew Jackson, Franklin Pierce, Lucinda (Featherston) Gresh, Melissa E. (Featherston) Mark, Mary A. (Featherston) Day and James William. She had three sets of twins: Eliza Jane and Nancy Ellen, Andrew Jackson and Franklin Pierce, Lucinda and Melissa. Also, two of her sisters were twins. So, it appears that having twins traces back to the Eudalys. The family lived near Noblesville in the 1850s and later settled near Old Augusta in Marion Co. She died sometime in the Fall of 1870.

The grave is currently unmarked. Maybe it was marked at one time. A lot of older graves were marked with wooden crosses bearing the names and dates. In some places field stones and large rocks were used as markers.

Narcissa was the great-great-granddaughter of Elizabeth (Woodson) Goode. She was a 5th cousin once removed to Jesse Woodson James. Another memorial for Jesse.
