James Lafever and Eliza Who?

I am trying to find out the maiden name of Eliza wife of James Lafever who was lived in Marion County. In there there appears to be 2 James Lafever.Lefever. One born about 1839 used the name James M. Lefever and married a Susan and moved to Crawford County Illinois.

The other James Lafever was born about 1837 and was living with his mother Mary Lafaver age 40 in Prospect Township in 1850 census. His siblings included Akvuba b. c. 1833, William b.c. 1834, John O. b.c. 1836, James born 1837, Charity? A. b. c. 1838, Robert b. c. 1840, Emelia b. c. 1841, Andrew b. c. 1843 and Miranda b. c. 1845.

James is a blacksmith and married about 1862 probably to Eliza J. and they have at least 3 children

Grant (some genealogies list him as James Grant) born 28 Jul 1864 (Marion Daily Star aricle states his 17th birthday was celebrated at James Lefever Owne's station on Thrud before Sat 30 Jul)
John M. born abt 1869
Fred born abt 1874 possible July 1873 if he is the Fred Lafever living in 1900 in Darke County.

Eliza appears to have been widowed by 29 Jan 1885 when she buys property in her own name.

I believe it is possible that Eliza is possible the Eliza born abt 1843 the dauther of Eliza Coldren and Isaiah Mattox. Does anyone know this family?
