Surnames: Dykstra & Doornbos

My grandfather's parents were Jacob Dijkstra (b. abt 1847 Uithuizen, d. 1921 Michigan, USA) and Elizabeth Doornbos (b. unk, d. 1917 Groningen, NL) I have reached a dead end with every search engine, LDS site,,, and query message boards trying to find out more about them, ie marriage date, parents names, actual birthdates, etc. I don't understand why I have been able to find my grandmother's family so easily and nothing on Grandpa's. Can anybody help me?
