2.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  not found.  (The only M./Mat* CARICO/CARRICO in the entire census is the one in his 30s in Washington Co., KY, who married Ruth O'DANIEL and died in 1842 in other words, the one in Washington County is not our subject.)  Said to be in the 1830 "census" of Goliad Co., TX, which is presumably a tax list.

3.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  not found as head-of-household, so he is presumably unmarried.  (The only M./Mat* CARICO/CARRICO in the entire census is the one in his 40s in Marion Co., KY, who married Ruth O'DANIEL and died in 1842 in other words, the one in Marion County is not our subject.)

Rachel is not living with her second husband, James Henry GARY, but knowing they divorced in 1873 makes their separation no surprise.  Listed next to married son, William CARICO, who for a less obvious reason is not living with his wife, Mary Charlotte (GARY) CARRICO, a daughter of James Henry GARY.
