    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      Pages from Citizens Cemetery enumeration indicate that the family of John, Jr. and Sarah Ann (KEELY) AULT were thought to have moved to OK; however, marriages that seem appropriately timed were found for Joseph and his sister Mary E. in Fulton Co., IN. Compiler has made the assumption that both of these children married before leaving Fulton Co.

      Compiler found "Joseph E. AULT" and his wife Eliza in Rochester Township in Fulton County, IN on the 1920 census. Joseph's age was given as 53; Eliza's was 54. Joseph's place of birth was recorded as "IN", but the place of birth of his father and his mother was unreadable. It may have been "U.S." but this is doubtful.

      Wednesday, December 16, 1925

      Joseph AULT, 60, dropped dead of heart failure at 4:15 o'clock Tuesday afternoon at the Deniston Elevator, where he had been employed as an extra man, feeding corn onto an 8 inch conveyor belt leading to a sheller. It was not strenuous work.

      Mr. Ault had told Cy CARLTON at noon Monday that he felt a pain he had never experienced before in the region of the heart. He had been troubled with pleurisy. Mr. Ault was found with a feeble pulse on the elevator room of the basement by Chas. TOWNE who investigated when he saw that the corn was not being placed on the conveyor. The victim of the heart attack died soon after.

      Joseph Ault was born in Fulton county, the son of John and Sarah AULT. He was united in marriage to Eliza MARRILL on Nov. 22, 1863.

      Surviving are the widow, two daughters, Mrs. Roscoe PONTIUS of Rochester and Mrs. Hettie SCHERMERHORN of South Bend; five sisters, Mrs. DAIL [?], Mrs. RICHARDSON, Mrs. Frank KETRICK, in the West, and a brother, Tula [?] AULT in Iowa.

      Two of the brothers and sisters live in Iowa, two in Oklahoma, and two in Colorado. Pending word from them, funeral arrangements have not been made.

      Mr. Ault was a member of the Baptist church and of the Red Men's lodge.

      Thursday, December 17, 1925

      The funeral of Joseph AULT, age 60, who died suddenly of heart failure Tuesday afternoon while at work at the Deniston elevator, will be held at 2:30 o'clock Friday afternoon at the Baptist church, the Rev. W. J. NIVEN in charge. Burial will be in the mausoleum.
