Ok, I'm getting some where. :)

This is the marriage record for John WILLIAM and Elizabeth HALL. It shows Elizabeth is the daughter of William and Mary. Again no maiden name for Mary, but given that two of her daughters Elizabeth WILLIAMS and Matilda SMITH were heirs in the estate, I think it's a safe bet that she is a daughter of Thomas SMITH.

Name: John Williams
Birth Place: Canada
Residence: Artemesia Township
Age: 26
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1841
Father Name: John
Mother Name: Catherine
Spouse Name: Elizabeth Hall
Spouse's Age: 24
Spouse Birth Year: abt 1843
Spouse Birth Place: Ireland
Spouse Residence: Artemesia Township
Spouse Father Name: William
Spouse Mother Name: Mary
Marriage Date: 1 Jan 1867
Marriage County or District: Grey

I've been trying to follow the family and it looks like John and Elizabeth moved to Sault Sainte Marie, Chippewa, Michigan after 1881.
Her family is found in the census there. She died in 1915, her death record listed her father as William HALL, no mother listed.

Edited to add: I found another Find a Grave entry with a death record for Eliza's sister Jennie (Jane?). It lists the mother as Mary SMITH and has an image of her death record. Lists her birth place as Amaranth, Ont. Although it's miss spelled.
