      NOTES:

      Mary Anderson GILCHRIST was the only daughter of Thomas GILCHRIST known to have survived until adulthood. There are reports among county histories that the GILCHRISTs had at least one other daughter who died in infancy. The grave marker for that child stands near Thomas and Phoebe's graves at Leiter's Ford, IN, but the inscription does not give a surname. Historians have assumed this child as well as two other infants in the same area belonged to the GILCHRISTs. Family tradition has made no mention of these three children.

      Mary was obviously named for her paternal grandmother, who came from SCOTLAND to Jefferson County, IN as "Mary ANDERSON" about 1818. In 1826, Mary ANDERSON married James GILCHRIST, another immigrant from SCOTLAND.

      Mary A. GILCHRIST married John AULT when about 18 years of age; she had the first of her six sons within the first year of marriage. She lived her entire life in Fulton and Marshall Counties in IN; she died in Culver, IN at the age of 73.

      From pictures owned by compiler, Mary appears to have been quite short. In pictures taken in her youth, Mary's face looks round and soft-featured; her hair was dark, but was worn pulled back from her face probably with a braid or a twist at the back of her head. She was rather plump as a young lady, but not obese. In middle-aged pictures, Mary had become quite a bit heavier and her facial features had started to take on a more sharply defined appearance.

      In later years, Mary's nose and chin were rather prominent; she remained heavy-set until the last time compiler saw her, just a year or two before her death.

      The following obituary was supplied by Wilma MOW FOLTZ, from "The Plymouth
      Pilot", July 1949:

      "MRS. JOHN AULT"

      "Mrs. Mary Anderson Ault, age 73, wife of John Ault, died in her home in Culver, Tuesday afternoon after an illness of nine months.

      She was born in Fulton county, six miles northwest of Rochester September 13, 1875 and spent her entire life in Fulton and Marshall county. She was the daughter of Thomas and Phoebe Gilchrist.

      Surviving are her husband, John Ault, six sons, Herman and Howard of Argos, Clarence of Tippecanoe, Ralph and Eldon of Plymouth, Harry of Chicago, 21 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren.

      Mrs. Ault was a member of the Culver E.U.B. church where services will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday. Rev. E.D. Mast of Urbana will be in charge and burial will be in the Culver cemetery.

      Friends may call at the residence in Culver."

      Per the 1920 census for Fulton County, IN, John and Mary A. AULT were enumerated in Richland Township. Mary's age was recorded as "44"; five of the couple's six sons were enumerated in their household on 10 January. Two days later, however, Howard and Harry were enumerated a second time in the household of Arley JONES. On the later record, the two young men were classified as "Hired Hands".
