ANDREW C. AULT, one of the influential citizens of Island Creek township, is a son of Jacob Ault, by his second marriage. He was born at Steubenville, May 3, 1833. He was reared and educated in his native township, and at the Normal school in Hopedale, Ohio, and at an early age began farming, to which he has devoted his life with much success. His long residence in the township, and industrious and honorable career, have made him popular with all. In politics he is a staunch republican, and he has held the office of township clerk with credit and is now a justice of the peace, serving his fourth term. He is a member of the Presbyterian church, of Pleasant Hill and has filled the office of ruling elder for fifteen years. In 1858 Mr. Ault was married to Sarah Wilkin, daughter of Archibald Wilkin, of Washington county, Penn., by whom he had three children: William S., Jacob M. and Joseph L. His first wife died in 1864, and he afterward married Mary C., daughter of John Robertson, elsewhere mentioned. She died October 15, 1880, leaving three children: Clinton B., John R. and Eliza E., all of whom are residing at the homestead known as Cottage Home, Island Creek township.
