Stanley Weston & Lydia Tanner Smith, Ruggles, 1800s

I'm looking for the names of the children of Lydia Tanner Smith and Stanley Weston. Lydia was born 14 Sep 1810 in Warren, Litchfield Co., CT, the daughter of Daniel Smith and Clarissa Curtis. I don't know Stanley's parents. He was born about 1807 probably in Warren, also. They moved to Ruggles, Huron Co. (later Ashland Co.), Ohio, marrying there in 1834, and they were in the 1840 census there. In 1850 they were in Green twp., District 2, Ashland Co., OH, with children: Mercy Theresa (b 1 Apr 1837), I. (female) b abt 1839/40, S. (female) b abt 1843, and W. (male) b abt 1845. The 1840 census indicated there may have been other, older children. I can't find this family in the 1860 census. Lydia died in 1867 (don't know where). There is a Stanley Westin, age 69, widower, in the 1880 census of Des Moines, IA, but I do not know if this is Lydia's husband. I could not find him in the 1870 census.

I understand that there is a family Bible for this Weston-Smith family and would love to know what it says about them. My ancestor, Ezra Daniel Smith, was a brother of Lydia.
