if you use any of the following information please cite me (Polly Lynn) and then I can send your reader to my Irish and New York sources.
Though married by 1850 Isaac P. Hall and Sarah Ann Harrison Hall continued to live with her parents [in their hotel Columbian]. 1850 federal census for New York [City] Ward 6 "Arthur Harrison 63 Jane Harrison 54 Edward Harrison 28 Sarah A.

Foyle 17 Rebecca Foyle 5 Catherine Mcgirl 16 Mary Kelly 40 James McCarty 15 Bernard Flaninghe" (Polly Lynn, researcher on ancestry)
Where was Rebecca Hall?Rebecca Hall 5 was with her parents and misnamed Rebecca Foyle.Rebecca Foyle is really Rebecca Hall.Thank you to Gretchen Furber for solving this one.(Gretchen Furber, gretchenandwalter@gmail, 25 February 2012.)There was once a Rebecca Foyle who in 1850 would have been 15 not 5, and she had died, I assume in New Orleans along with her parents and sister, Alice.
In April 1853 Sarah's brother James George died.He had been a policeman.One of his children was Edward Harrison who would come to live with Sarah.She may have [unofficially] adopted him as he is not listed separately from her when his siblings are named as individuals in Greenwood documents.(Polly Lynn, researcher.)

In 1866 Sarah was given 5 Mott Street by her BROTHER Edward Harrison who died in 1866.(AKB will.)

In New York City, NEPHEW Edward Harrison was living with his Aunt Sarah Harrison Hall and his cousin William Hall.
In 1870 look separately for children Jane Hall and Edward Hall.The 1870 census taken just after the Civil War was an undercount.(New York Times.)Can't find Edward.
The following appears to be Sarah (who has dropped in age) and three of her children, William G./Andrew Hall, Edward Hall, and Rebecca Kinnier, with I suppose Rebecca's two children, Sarah and Harrison. 1880 Brooklyn, Kings County, New York William G. Hall 35, Real Estate Agent, New York, Virginia, Ireland Edward H. Hall 24 born New York, father born Virginia, mother born Ireland Rebecca Kinnier 28 born New York, father born Virginia, mother born Ireland Harrison G. Kinnier 9 at school, born New York, New York, Ireland Sarah E. Kinnier 12 NY NY Irel Sarah A. Hall 45 Irel Irel Irel (Polly Lynn, researcher on ancestry)
1900 I have yet to find Sarah Hall in the 1900 census.
DEATH Sarah Ann Hall died on 30 December 1900.She left no will.(Harrison Kinnier deposition, Green-Wood Cemetery document associated with lot 3690.)
