I have traced his family to Sharp county and the Wirth area. They appear to have moved to the area around 1880 from Alabama. There was a trio of Rikards that appear to have moved into the Wirth area around 1880 and all deeded between 80 and 160 acres of land. Their names were Willaim Hutch Rikard, wife Martha, Marion Rikard, and B.L. or Bell Rikard. I am interested in any and all information anyone may have.
