Reeves genealogy

Trying to find information about my husband's g-grandfather, Howard Reeves. (Maybe Howard is a middle name?) He was born abt 1814 somewhere in N. C. Wife Phoebe (unknown) was born abt 1814 somewhere in TN. Their 2 oldest children were also born in TN - Elizabeth in 1835 & Robert A in 1837. All other children were born in MO. Howard was in the Union Army from Madison Co (TN or MO?) TN 1860 census shows a H W Rieves which could be Howard William Rieves but no Phoebe as wife. MO 1850 census shows Howard Reeves, w Phoebe, Elizabeth, Robert and 3 other children. Husband's grandfather later lived in Elizabeth's household. Husband's grandfather's death certificate states that his father was Howard Reeves. Any leads or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
