I suggest getting their death certificates from the PA dept of Health. They should list their parents' names and where they are buried. Their obituaries may help too. Check with the Luzerne County Historical Society, Osterhout Free Library and Northeastern Pennsylvania Genealogical Society in Shavertown for the obits and burial places.
James and Amy may have gotten their marriage license at the Luzerne County Register of Wills. Be sure to look at the marriage application as it will have the most data. Hugh and Mary's deaths may have been recorded at the same office in the county death records 1893-1905. The record may not tell you much except exactly when they died and where they are buried. Any estate files would also be in the same office. With luck one of them may have the exact dates of death which will help considerably in getting the obits and death certificates.
You could also try contacting the cemetery offices to see what they have in their records. In addition to confirming that they are buried where you think they are they should be able to give you death deaths or at least burial dates. The church they were members of may have some useful info in their records.
If all else fails the death certificates, obituaries and possibly marriage records of at least one of Amy's children should have her maiden name.
