You don't have to use a name of a loved one to pick a meaningful name. Are there any places or things that are important to you or your husband? For example, I know a Caroline whose parents met in Charlotte, NC (Charlotte and Caroline are derived from the same root.) Calla Lilies are my grandmother's favorite flowers and she used them at her wedding, so I might consider Callum, Calla, or Lily to honor her. Even generic names like Nadia (means "hope") may carry important meanings with them because of what they symbolize. Try to think of concepts or ideas that might work- I'm sure you'll find lots!
Here are some suggestions based on your list. Again, sorry for repeats:
Laura- see Lauren
Harry- Henry, Hank, Hal, Harriet, Hattie
Carrie- Caroline, Carys
Brian- Bryony, Briallen
Lauren- Lorenzo, Laurensa, Lorena, Lola, Lawrence
Louise- Lula, Alula
Wilbur- William, Willow
Jeannne- Jane, Johanna, Sinead, Giovanna, Gianna, Jana
Bessie- Elizabeth, Isabel, Tess/Tessa, Belle, Elise, Elisa, Lise, Zabel, Sabella
Emerson- Emily, Emma, Emmett
Wolfford - Wolf or names that mean it: Lowell, Kennelly, Conall, Conor, Conri, Cuan, Faolan, Conan, Lyall, Remus, Roman, Romy For girls: Guadalupe, Lupe, Romilly, Roma, Romy
Talmidge- The Hebrew Tal, plus Talia.
Tawes- I like Tawes on its own actually. But there's also Dawes, Tawson/Taweson, and Tawny.
Hilary- Ellery, Alair, Ilaria
Talmidge + Wolfford: Tala, the Algonquin word for "wolf"
Evelyn: Emerson + Lynn
Wolfford + Wilbur: Wilford
Wilbur + Emerson: Wilson
Tawes + Emerson= Tawson
Brian + Emerson= Bryson
Laura/Lauren + Tawes + Emerson = Lawson
Laura/Lauren + Harry = Lawrence, Laurence, or Larry
