Hello, I need help. Please reply to my main email:
I have an Alfred Ault, married to Jennie Mae Leighton. Alfred was born around 1881-83 and I have his death certificate that clearly states he committed suicide, but thats besides the point.
I also have a few census records, in 1900 he is living with his aunt (Emma Page)(moms sister) and her husband (Albert Newton). He is listed as being 18. This is in Mill Twp., Tuscarawas Co., OH.
1910, He is living on his own with his wife and 3 sons. He is listed as being 27. This is in Saline Twp., Jefferson Co., OH.
1920, He is still around, now all of his kids are born and living with him. He is listed as being 39. He is living in the same Jefferson Co. location here.
So... Heres the problem. From what the family told me, He ran away from home when he was little, which explains why he is living with his aunt and uncle.
His death certificate says his parents where: Henry or Harry Ault, and Jennie Page.
I believe his mother was Matilda O. Page (younger sister of Emma Page) who seems to have passed away around the age of 20.
As for the father, I cant find anything. I once read online somewhere that they had information that a Henry Ault was "with" Matilda Page, and thats the ONLY connection I can find.
Here's a neat thing to focus on...
His kids seem to all be named after someone.
Harry- Could be named after Alfreds dad?? Charles- no known connection George- same Leighton- Named from Alfred's wife, Jennie Leighton Matilda- Probably named after Alfreds mother Jennie- Probably named after her mother, Jennie. Alberta- no known connection
