Mattox/Eades/Eads/Harris Graves

I really hope someone can help me. I have been trying to locate the graves of my grandfather and two of his wives which would be my grandmother and step grandmother. All are list as Colored, Mulatto or Negro. In front of me I have a certificate of death for my grandfather. Name showing as Taylor Mattox born 1881, but his full name was Taylor Charles Mattox. Place of death: Charleston General Hospital, Kanawha County, Charleston, (Boomer) West Virginia. Last wife’s name Lucy (not one of the two wives I am looking for). Father: Charles Mattox, b. Virginia, Mother: Lucy A. Dunning b. Virginia. Informant: Myrtle Clarkson(my aunt-his daughter). Burial, Cremation or removal place shows: Cedar Grove date 7/31/1936. In funeral director it shows “Harden & Harden” Charleston, West Virginia, license # either 653 or 553. Date of death: July 27, 1936. Signature looks like E.J. Hall at Chras Gen Hospital. All I have on his first wife is as follows: Augusta “Gusta or Gussie Eades or Eads b. about 1878 in Pittsylvania Virginia d. about 1908 in Virginia-I was told it may be due to childbirth. Second wife, Hattie Sue Harris (may have had a previous marriage to a “Owens”) d. 1929 in Kanawha, West Virginia. My grandfather had at least five wives’ but the two mentioned above are the only ones that I know of so far that he had children with. If you can help in anyway, I would greatly appreciate it. When and if you do find any information,
