Looking for Margaret Cherry (b. late 1800s) married to Harry Cherry

Journal by jenlynn97

I am hitting a brick wall when it comes to my great-great grandmother, Maggie. Family lore is that Margaret's maiden name was Cherry and she married a Cherry. I believe they are from the Southern Ohio/West Virginia area. I have the birth certificate of my great grandmother, Hallie Etta Cherry and her sister Gladys Bell Cherry. Gladys Bell went on to marry a Rolston, and I have her obituary, which names Harry and Margaret (both deceased) as her parents in the 1990's. Family lore also states that Maggie's parents were Albert Cherry and Katherine Hawkins, but I cannot find anything to prove this. In the 1920 census, Maggie is living with her "half-sister" Elizabeth Hawkins (listed as divorced) in Pleasants, WV, however, Maggie is listed as single (not divorced or widowed). This is strange, because both of her children were born then. Hallie Etta married my great-grandfather when he was in his 40's and she was about 13-15, in West Virginia. I have her marriage certificate. Her mother is listed but her father is left blank. This is something of a family mystery. Can anyone help?
