Not so fabulously experienced but here's what I found.  The daughter born to James and Narcisse in 1880 was named after her mother.  The spellings are not the best, but that appears to be her birth name.  Nercissa/Nersus.

In 1881 she is called 'Maud' but in 1891 it appears again as the name is Nercissa
