Charles HEMMER b. 1842 Ger-OH-ARK

My gr-gr-grandfather:
Charles H. Hemmer born 1842 in Germany; settled in Ohio with first wife (her name??), son & two daughters. Served in the Union Army, returning to find his wife had died and children placed in a convent orphanage. Orphanage refused to release the daughters to him. Daughters both became nuns. He later married CAROLINE BIGGS from Tennessee, settled in Arkansas and raised two more sons, PETER J. HEMMER b. 1885 & JOHN HEMMER b. 1891. Peter married CARRIE JANE WARD (daughter of SEABURN WARD & MARY JANE KEADLE).
I have been unable to find Charles Hemmer on the ships records, cannot find the name of his first wife or confirm the names of his daughters (they both died in Ohio).
I'll be grateful for any leads.
p.s. Also looking for the parents of Seaburn Ward and Mary Jane Keadle.
