James, you gave your experience level as "beginner", so here are some basics to check.  Have you located their death records (the death filing in the towns in which they died)?  Sometimes death records can provide names of parents and place of birth.  I assume that you have looked closely at Southbridge MA materials (vital records, directories, census, town histories) since you mention that they were "of Southbridge" on the Woodstock CT marriage record.
