Alexander Anton KAFKA

I am seeking further information on Alexander Anton Kafka. He came to the US on 21 August 1862 on the ship Albert from the port of Bremen and arrived at Baltimore, Maryland. He was 33 years old and was listed as a tailor. He married Magdalena Maxa on 9 Dec 1857 in Luttan, Bohemia. He served in the 10th Regiment of Maryland Infantry from 10 Jul 1863 to 29 Jan 1865. The family later moved to Missouri shortly after his service or before he finished service. I have him firmly located in 1869 in St. Louis. Alexander and Magdalena had 2 children in Bohemia, Marie Mary Ann (my great grandmother) who married Joseph W. Kotrba and Theresa A. who later married Joseph Marx in 1879 in St. Louis. Other children that I know of were Caroline, Elizabeth, Joseph J. who married Catherine Koestor, and Otillia. From his army records I have his father as Wenzel Kafka an mother as Elisabeth Prill, Magdalena's parents were listed as Franz Maxa and Anna Skomicka, Anna is listed on the ship manifest as comming to the US with the couple.
Does anyone have a link to this family? Or can anyone help shed any further light on my search?
