Ricard vs Rikard vs Raccurst - Charlie A. Ricard

Surnames: Rikard, Ricard, Raccurst
Hi all,

I'm in search of my 4th great grandfather's parents, it's as if he came from nowhere.

Charlie A. Ricard was married to Mary Elizabeth Smith and they lived in Lexington County, SC. Charlie was born in 1818. The only real evidence I have of him is on his son Henry S. Ricard's death certificate and that he submitted a claim to the US army after the civil war for loss of supplies used by the soldiers.

I've scoured the internet for anything that tells me who he could have been related to but I can't find much. From the research I've done, I can't find any Ricards in Lexington county...which leads me to believe that he is a descendant of Thomas Raccurst who had 4 sons (and the name was just a change in spelling over the years). I found a family history of Thomas, but nowhere in the document is there a Charles A Rikard. He must have come from one of them, but there is no written evidence of this. I've looked on Newberry and Lexington County websites and I haven't had much luck. Can anyone help me?
