Comfort Siler 45 liv/w Blanchet family

The 1850 Census of Chatham Co., NC pg. 412a shows
Henry Blanchet 19, wife Narcissa 18 and Comfort Siler 45. I see lots of Siler in Chatham Co., but no Blanchett/ Blanchard. Was Narcissa maiden name Siler and Comfort her mother?

Henry and Narcissa Blanchet/Blanchard will move to Christian Co., MO by 1860. That census shows them with ch: Charles 10, Jno. 8, Mary 6 and William 2. An Emily and Henry Wise jr. were born after this census. The family moved to Carter Co., MO and remained there.
Henry Sr. was called Wise Owl Blanchard and said to be full blood Cherokee from NC. He became a scout for the Union Army during the Civil War in Missouri and was killed on his way home by bushwackers. Narcissa remarried to Edmond Bridges before 1870 and again in 1894 to Wilkinson Hunt. She is still living on the 1900 census in her daughter Mary's home in Carter Co., MO.

If anyone has any information about Henry and Narcissa's parents it would sure be appreciated.
