It became an Ohio law in 1867 that all deaths must be recorded, so perhaps you're just not looking in the right place....I'm assuming that you've checked the death records at St Clairsville? HOw about those at the Ohio Historical Center, in Columbus? They have and online site. Perhaps they were killed in an accident tht occured NOT in their home county, and in that case the deaths would be listed in the county of death, NOT the county they had lived in. If you have any sort of idea when the deaths occured you could check the local newspapers for obits, or even articles on the accidental deaths....the OHC has an online listing of the newspapers they have on film, and you could get them through interlibrary loans and see if you can find them listed. If you know they are not in the 1890 census but appear in the 1880, this would at least narrow it down somewhat.
