Abner and Nancy Bozarth of Missouri. 1850's

I need to find out more information about this Bozarth family.
They lived in Campbell Twp.,Taney County , MO.
In the 1850 census it lists:
A. Bozorth 36 M Farmer 130 b. Tenn
N. Bozorth 29 F b. Tenn
H. McDail 36 F W b. Tenn
E. McDail 12 F b. Tenn
O. McDail 7 M b. Tenn
J. McDail 3 M b. Tenn
N. McDail 10 mo. F b. Missouri
T.? Thompson 11 F b. Tenn

I believe the Bozarths mentioned here may be Abner and Nancy who were married in Marion County, MO. Notice that in 1850 they had no children and they were born in Tennessee. In 1860 they are not in Taney County any more.
Does this fit anyone's family?
The family living with them is Hester McDowel (probably born 1820), a dau, Owen, James, and Nancy Ann (born Jan. 1850 after they arrived in MO).
This Bozarth family appears to have taken in a pregnant widow and her family. Therefore, I think they are relatives. He could be Hester's brother or she could be her sister.
The Nancy Bozarth that was married in Marion Co. was formerly Nancy Anderson.
There was a fire in the Courthouse in the 1880's making most records unavailable.
Thanks for any help.
Sharon
