There is no confirmation of the name of mother for Eli and his siblings. This profile is somewhat of a work in progress.
A possible source for Eli's mother are the memoirs Eli's son Elias Hardcastle wrote. There are 4 versions of these handwritten memoirs and one version was published by Elias' grandson, Marcus M Lowthorp, titled "The Life and Times of Elias Hardcastle".  . The four versions are mostly the same and for the most part Elias being age 90, he had an excellent memory and the memoirs are invaluable resource for all descendants of Eli Hardcastle and Susan Pate.
In the memoirs, the only possible mention of Eli's mother is Elias' reference to grandmaw Narcissus. He never states she is Eli's mother. I have wondered if Elias was just told his sister Narcissus Elizabeth was named after his grandmaw and this is where the statement comes from.
