McGarys/Thompsons Belmont County

Looking for information on the families of Margaret E. McGary Crooks Thompson, born 1859, and Jonah Thompson, b about 1853. They lived in Blaine, Richland Township as well as Pease Township. My great grandfather,their son, was born in Martins Ferry in 1894. Margaret was first married in 1874 to James V Crooks in St Clairsville and divorced him in 1877. Married Jonah on April 21, 1880. She died in 1897 of typhoid fever in Pease Twp. I'm looking for where she is buried. In 1900 Census, Jonah lived with Alfred McGarys family in Pease Twp. I'm sure he was related to Margaret. Unable to find anything else about him. The siblings of my great grandfather that I am aware of were Robert, b about 1886; Clayton Orville, b 1882 and died in 1936. Then Minnie E, 1890 and my ggrandfather Fred in 1894 and Lewis in 1896. I'm sure there were others. Please help! Unable to find Jonah or Margaret in any of the census' besides 1880 and then 1900. Thanks.
