I assume that Thomas died, however, Ohio didn't start to record deaths until 1867.

I'd contact the Portage County Historical Society and ask if they have a local death index, indexed newspaper death notices and inventories cemeteries. They are abstracting probate court records.

Charles Hopkins made the application for their marriage license. No parents on document.

I'd look for the newspaper announcement of their marriage for parents names.
