Kay, I'm a BOYD from Belmont Co and my family is intertwined with the NEFFs and MC KELVEYs, but I find nothing in my yrs of research to help you.
Rather than "looking for someone to connect Eliza to James", I suggest you contact the Co Recorder in Belmont for a deed, as I'm not finding a will for James, d 1860. A child, usually a son, may want to sell, or buy out, his father's property, and needs to have his siblings signoff...lists names/locations...this will be called a Quit Claim or a Petition to Partition.
As wonderful as it is, the Internet doesn't begin to touch the vast amt of holdings in the Co courthouses, especially wills, probate, and deeds.
If you have a Family History Ctr near you, this is an excellent resource for research. They also now have affiliate public libraries, where microfilm/fische from Salt Lake City can be ordered/rec'd.
I'm 99% convinced Eliza is d/o James. She is the only Eliza in Belmont Co, and her age as Eliza NEFF matches that of Eliza THOMPSON. There might be an obit for her.
