Did any of them leave a will (probate record)? Children may have been named in a will.

Check local newspapers for obituaries.

Each state keeps its own vital records. There's no national database for birth certificates, and each state has different privacy rules.

Maybe try tracking down siblings who may still be living? They might have info on any nieces / nephews.

daliowa has given you some good ideas to get started.
Wills are documents is something you can obtain based on the research fee and printing costs charged depending on the county. There were beneficiaries if they owned property, and the persons appointed as executors will be on those records, etc.
