      NOTES:

      Around 1950, compiler, her parents and younger brother spent a week of school vacation visiting extended family in northern Indiana. This was one of the few times compiler's father took time off from his home and work responsibilities. As it turned out, the trip was marred only by a near tragedy of compiler's six year old brother falling out of the car which was traveling at highway speed; fortunately he was spared any lasting injury.

      One of the highlights of this trip was a brief visit with Howard and "Dollie" Ault. The Aults lived on a farm in Fulton County, IN. The house was an old two-story frame home, typical of farm homes in the early 1900's. A huge red barn. a milk house and several other buildings were also part of this traditional midwest farm. Howard, attired in "bibbed" overalls and faded blue work shirt, was a tall, rather stout man, who compiler remembers as looking very much like his mother--somewhat rounded face, sharply pointed nose, etc.

      Compiler no longer remembers "Dollie's" appearance, but the memory remains of all the "goodies" she had made for Christmas. There were several kinds of homemade cookies, cakes, puddings and candy. One particular candy stands out in compilers' mind--we had never heard of "potato candy" It was delicious!!!

      A photocopy of Howard's obituary was provided by Wilma MOW FOLTZ

      "HOWARD AULT"

      "Final rites will be at 2 p.m. Friday in the Whippoorwill Community Church for Howard Ault, R.R. 3, Rochester, who died at 5:20 a.m. Wednesday in the Rochester nursing home.

      The Rev. Delbert Williams will officiate. Burial will be in the Culver Masonic Cemetery. Friends may call at the Grossman funeral home in Argos from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 today until 11 a.m. Friday and at the church one hour prior to services.

      A retired farmer, Mr. Ault had resided all his life in the Culver and Rochester areas. He was born Feb, 26, 1895 in Fulton county to John and Mary Gilchrist Ault. His marriage was Dec. 30, 1925 at Culver to Verda Miller. She survives. He was a member of the Whippoorwill Community church and a veteran of World War I.

      Also surviving are one daughter, Mrs. Dwight (Elizabeth) Kline, Monterey; one son Ray Ault, R.R. 3, Rochester; 10 grandchildren; three great grandchildren; four brothers, Ralph of Plymouth; Harry of Knox; Clarence of Tippecanoe; and Eldon of Plymouth. One daughter preceded in death."

      The 1920 census for Fulton County shows Howard enumerated in his parents' household on 10 Jan. 1920; he is enumerated a second time (as is his brother, Harry) in Marshall County about 23/26 January. In the latter record, both Howard and Harry are listed as "Hired Man". Their occupations are listed as "Laborer".
