Hall and McDaniel

I am lost and confused on this one....

Teri Pettit who hosts the Rowan County site has an article about a murder of an Isaac Hall in Morgan Co., KY 3 January, 1868. Teri is a very good researcher and I believe her records are accurate.
Isaac's mother, two brother's, one sister and a brother-in-law and a nephew are part of the known culprits of this murder. However, my concern is the girlfriend of the murdered Isaac Hall. Per court records her name was Eliza McDaniel. Teri thinks her to be the daughter of George and Elizabeth Royse McDaniel. I think she is right. More on this can be found on the Rowan County site.
I have Eliza with her parents in 1850 and 1860 census records. Then I loose her. She once more shows in the 1900 census married to a Preston Hall.

900 United States Federal Census
Hoggtown, Rowan, Kentucky
Household Members: Name Age
Preston Hall 41
Elza Hall 52
Ottie C Hall 16
John Hall 18
Susan Mary Hall 5
Emrich G Hall 13
Miram f Hall 11 (male)
NOTE: Preston and Eliza show married 20 yrs. She reports being the mother of 5 children, with 3 living. Ottie C. should be Othie C. and Emrich G. Hall age 13 looks like Enoch on the census page to me. Interesting that Miram shows as male.

Again I loose them and their children ....until I find Preston and Eliza's death certificates.

Does anyone have anything on this family. I think I can understand why Eliza seemed to vanish after the trial. She was the star witnesses for the prosecution. But who is this Preston Hall? And where did they go? Did they change their names? This has puzzled me for years, so any help will be greatly appreciated.
