Coffels and Hudsons in St Francois Co.

I am looking for information on John Coffle and family. John was born in Tennessee in 1831. He married someone with the initials of M..C. . I have reason to believe that her name was Martha Catherine Davis( born in TN around 1833). They were living in St. Francois Co., Missouri in the year of 1860. Their three children were Susan, Jacob, and Frances. The strange thing is, for some reason they completely vanish after 1860, but later Mrs. Martha Catherine Coffel, Frances Coffel, and Jacob Coffel all resurface between 1876 and 1880 in marriage records, and they all married someone from the same Hudson family.

I have reason to believe that they returned to wherever they came from prior to 1860. I cannot find John prior to 1860 and after 1860. There may have been a chance that he was in the Civil War. I found a pension record for John Coffett with an Alias of John Coffle. The pension application was filed in Missouri. This has led me to believe John may be in linked to Jacob Coffett(Coffelt) from the Marion Co., Tennessee area.

I am also searching for information on James Hudson and family. James wasa born in Tennessee around 1810, and between 1870 and 1880. As far as I know he lived in St. Francois Co. until he died. He was married to Melinda Thompson , or Moran.They had the following children.

1.William Hudson b.1843

2.Allen Hudson b1850
married Mrs Martha Catherine Coffel in 1876

3 .James R Hudson b. 1854

4. John Hudson b. 1857
married Frances Coffel in 1876

5. Mary Louisa Hudson b.1860
Married Jacob Coffel in 1881

Any information would be extremely helpful.
