Most likely you have solved your problem by now, so I may be handing out old news. Charles A. Ricard,1818-1905 had his name entered wrongly in a census. Those census takers were very sloppy in their work. His name should be entered as Rikard because his Father was Henry W. Rikard 1797-1847. His mother was Elizabeth Wicker, 1805-1883. Further confirmation of their bad work can be seen in the following Obit. for Chares in "Lexington Dispatch" issued on 6 Dec. 1905. Mr Charles A Rickard died on 5 Nov. at the age of 94 years, 4 months, and 20 Days. He was born in Newberry County on 16 Jun. 1818, and was a Confederate Veteran. He was the Father of 8 children, 4 of whom are still living.
A further listing gave Mary Elizabeth Smith, born 29 Nov. 1815, and died 22 Aug. 1897. She is buried in Boiling Springs United Methodist Cemetery. Hope this helps.
Al Rikard
