      NOTES:

      Clarence and Mary Ault visited compiler's family in Jeffersonville and the Gilchrists were welcomed into the Ault home a few times during compiler's childhood. The farm near Tippecanoe, IN where the Ault family lived, had been owned by Mary Swihart Ault's parents. Mary taught school for many years, as well as caring for a farm house and her family. After Clarence died in 1985, The Ault's son, Bob, continued to farm "the Swihart place" as it was called by the area natives.

      Wilma Foltz transcribed the obituary of Clarence and sent it to compiler.

      "C. Clarence Ault, 80, 5768 19th Road, Tippecanoe, died at 11 p.m. Sunday at Miller's Merry Manor, Plymouth, after a lengthy illness. A retired farmer, he also was a retired employee of the R.R. Donnelly Lakeside Press at Warsaw.

      Mr. Ault was born Jan. 22, 1905 in Fulton County to John and Mary Gilchrist Ault and was a lifetime area resident. He was married in December of 1936 to Mary M. Swihart who preceded him in death June 26 of this year. He was a member of the Walnut Church of the Brethern.

      Surviving are two sons; Robert Ault, Tippecanoe, and Larry Ault, Mentone; six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

      Services will be conducted at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday at Walnut Church of the Brethern with Rev. Gary Edwards officiating. Burial will be in the Brethern Cemetery. Friends may call at Grossman Funeral Home, Argos, from 2 till 4 and 6 till 8 p.m. Tuesday and one hour prior to time of services Wednesday."

      Until fire destroyed their farm house, Byron and Emma Gilchrist owned a farm very close to the Swihart place. During summers before Byron's retirement from construction work, the family spent most of their weekends on the farm, where compiler visited during summer vacation. Larry and Bob Ault were frequently at the Gilchrist farm. After Byron retired, he and Emma sold their home in South Bend and made the farm their permanent residence until the fire forced them to move elsewhere. The two families maintained a close relationship until illness and advancing age limited their activities.

      Until the examination of the 1920 census for Fulton County, IN, the name of this second cousin of compiler's had been recorded only as "C. Clarence" AULT. That census record showed his name as "Charles C."
