One of the most painstaking and successful farmers of Clinton county is John Ault, a man who has always advocated that whatever was worth doing at all was worth doing well, hence his continued success in his chosen line of endeavor. Being an omnivorous reader, he keeps well abreast of the times, not only in matters pertaining to agricultural affairs, but general topics, having the best current literature in his home.
Mr. Ault, like many of the enterprising people of this section, is a native of the Hoosier state, having been born in Hamilton county, Ind., February 25, 1862, the son of James and Mary (BILLHAYMER) AULT. He moved with his parents to Clinton county when he was six or eight years old.
His father was born in Marion county, Ind., in 1830, and died in 1910. He was a farmer by vocation and politically was a Democrat. The mother was a native of Virginia, having been born there in 1832, and is still living. Both parents had a common school education. Seven children blessed the union: Catherine, Many, Christy, John and Andrew, twins, Rosy (deceased), and Nancy.
John was married November 24, 1889 to Mary E. WHITCOMB, who was born in Michigan township, this county, June 21, 1864, and was the daughter of John and Martha (STINSON) WHITCOMB. Her father was born March 12, 1832, in Tippecanoe county, Ind., and died April 17, 1905. The father was a farmer and a Republican. Eleven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Whitcomb: James H., William A. (deceased), Isaac M., Howard (deceased), Mary, Emma, Fred, Eliza, one infant not named, Leonard (deceased), and Orville. Mrs. Ault has a good common school education. To our subject and wife there have been born three children: Howard, July 23, 1890; Paul, January 17, 1892, and Ralph, a twin brother,
