You might try the free search tool at  Found Lydia's birthplace and father's name on her death cert.  If you plug in the parents/siblings names you may find more on her ancestry.  Only found John's dob and dod.  Again, you might find more if you play with the search.  Also there is more census data on the family of John and Lydia.
