Stoughton Rickard was united in marriage to Catherine (Bovee) Rickard.
The excerpt below is from a Rickard Family Story, telling about Stoughton Rickard, moving to Iowa to live with his son, Chester Rickard, in Algona, Kossuth County, Iowa.
"During the summer of 1872, Grandfather [Stoughton] Rickard came to make his home with us. Grandmother [Catherine Rickard] had passed away sometime previous. He came from Rubicon, Wisconsin, to Algona by rail, as by now the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway had completed the road that far. We did not know of his coming and he walked out to our home. It was a very hot day in August. Father [Chester Rickard] was cutting wheat on the 80 where the house stands at present. He arrived around noon on Wednesday. Friday night he suffered an apoplectic stroke and passed away Saturday afternoon. There was no undertaker to prepare his body for shipping so he was buried in Algona beside our Baby Stoughton. He had been very much enthused over the prospects of the new country.
