Hi Kara, welcome to RootsChat.  It looks like Harold & Mary are on the obituary index here - http://index.rbhayes.org/hayes/index/  The Social Security application & claim index indicates that Harold died 4 Mar. 1955.  Based on this, Mary's obit seems to mention a sister - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVSY-56TB

Assuming the information about them marrying in Scotland is correct, you should be able to purchase their marriage record from http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/welcome.aspx.  That record should contain the names of their parents.  You could also order their death certificates from Ohio - https://www.odh.ohio.gov/vs 

This seems like a possible match for Harold on the 1901 England census - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XSNX-XXF
