The 6 known children of Henry C. and Mary E. Greenfield are:

Mary L. Greenfield, our Great Grand Aunt, was born in 1843 in DC.

James Henry Greenfield, our Great Grand Uncle was born two years later in 1845, again in DC.  He too worked as a butcher, perhaps at his father's store, along with brother Charles M. Greenfield.  James H., too, was a butcher per the 1866 DC directory, which was one year following the death of his father.  Henry died of Yellow Fever in October 1870 in DC per the DC Mortality Records; Washington Ward 6, DC.

George A. Greenfield, another Great Grand Uncle was born a year later, or about 1846 in DC.  He may have died before he was 14.  Unknown.

Charles M. Greenfield, our Great Grandfather.  Charles M. was born in DC in August of 1847 and died there on August 17 of 1901, at the age of just 54.  He worked as a butcher, perhaps at his father's store, since Henry C. Greenfield was a merchant in DC. He was a butcher per the 1866 DC directory, which was one year following the death of his father.

William 'Wallace' Greenfield, another Great Grand Uncle, was born several years later in 1853 in DC.  William Wallace died 18 August 1885 in DC. He is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery DC, Plot: North Hill, Lot: 203.  His wife is Emma E. LNU.   She was a widow living at 1321 N NW, DC in 1890.
