Dear Al;
Your posting has me very confused and curious!
Here is the posting to which I refer:

Eliza Mann b. abt. 1800, Dunmoyle, County Tyrone, Ireland, m. 1) William Rankin & 2) Stewart Hall. In 1845, Eliza came to Wheeling, WV, as head of household including son John Henry Hall & wife Irene Jane Howell.
His daughter Eliza Mann Hall m. my grandfather, Alfred Goodrich Braden of Washington, PA. Be glad to swap info.

I am confused because I thought that Eliza Mann was married to my gggrandfather, Thomas Lilburn of Dungannon, and here you are saying that she was married to William Rankin and Stewart Hall!

Eliza was Thomas' second wife (I thought). Thomas didn't die until 1873. I thought he married Eliza in 1843 (I have the newspaper announcement). Her father didn't approve of this marriage and said so in his will.

Do you think my Eliza and yours are one and the same? It would seem so, yet the dates do not really add up.

Looking forward to hearing from you about this puzzle!
