I should have added Ohio also.
I have a reference to a Catherine Rickel, born 11/26/1843 in Ohio that appears to be in the right age range for your distant cousins wife.
She was the daughter Michael J. Rickel(12/21/1816-2/27/1887) and Mary A. Lasley(3/26/1818-1906).
If this fits, Michael is a direct descendant of George Ruckel and Anna Bosshartin.
