    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      Information given on this son of John AULT, Sr. in the excerpts from p 135 of "Citizens Cemetery," removed doubts from compiler's mind as to this being the father of John AULT, husband of Mary A. GILCHRIST. Per the cemetery enumeration, Joseph A. was born in OH and was the son of Susan, John AULT's first wife.

      The "Citizens Cemetery" excerpt reads as follows:

      "(Note: Joseph AULT, son of John & Susan AULT of Rochester twp, m. (first) Nancy E. "Ellen" LUCAS, 28 May 1868 and resided in Union twp with a son, John, b. Sept. 1869 (Fulton Co., IN, M.R.; Census 1870). Joseph (A.) AULT m. next, 30 Apr. 1876, Martha E. CROMER, and they resided in Rochester city in 1880, with their son John (mentioned above), and worked in a livery stable. (Fulton Co., IN, M.R.; Census 1880.)

      The reference above makes no mention of Joseph AULT having another son; however, the obituary for his son John AULT states that John's "brother, Clyde AULT, survives." Clyde was married in 1911, so he was probably the son of Joseph and his second wife, Martha (CROMER), and a half-brother to compiler's great uncle, John AULT.

      Joseph A. AULT, wife Martha and a son, John, were enumerated in the town of Rochester in 1880. Joseph was reported as 32 years old. He was born in OH and both his parents born in PA. Martha was 25, born in IN; Martha's father was born in Germany, her mother in IN. John was 10.

      Compiler found Joseph and Martha E. AULT on the 1920 census in Rochester Township, Fulton County. Joseph's age was given there as "71." His place of birth was unreadable on the microfilm, but his parents' places of birth were both given as "PA."

      After making contact with two other AULT researchers, compiler found substantial evidence that John AULT's second wife, Julianna YOHE, was the mother of all 14 of the AULT children. John and Julianna were married while still in Ohio in 1829. Julianna did not die until 1877, and the family was in Fulton County, IN at that time. If John was at one time married to a "Susan" as reported by the Fulton County Cemetery Book, the marriage must have taken place before 1829 and Susan must have died in PA.

      Thomas Ault, another Ault descendant, in his Descendant Chart for John F. Ault, has two additional sons listed for Joseph and Martha (Cromer) Ault?Alonzo, b. 1882 in Miami County, IN and Frederick Ault, b. 1876 in Fulton County. Mr. Ault also has Clyde, b. 1888, listed as the son of Joseph and Nancy (Lucas) Ault. The latter is very unlikely, since Martha Cromer and Joseph were married in 1876. Compiler has found no other evidence of the two additional sons. Neither of them were listed as survivors of John Ault in 1969; however Clyde was listed.
