    • In 1920 the census shows that his parents, Howard W Ault, 43, and Louise, 31, lived with the following children: Iva, 15; Anita, 14; and Clarence, 2 & 11/12. Howard, Louise, and the two girls were all born in Ohio; Clarence was born in Kansas. 1920 U.S. Census, Lamont Twsp, Hamilton Cnty, KS (T 625, Roll 532, stamped p. 246 B) [census taken on 12 Jan 1920].
    • The 1930 census records that Clarence E Ault, 13, was living with his widowed father Howard W, 52. (The census noted that Howard was married when he was 22 yrs old, which computes to 1899.) Howard's employment was as a "grain farmer." 1930 U.S. Census, Syracuse, Hamilton Cnty, KS (T 626, Roll 704, stamped p. 27-B).
    • According to his grandfather John H. Snouffer's will of 1939, Clarence was living in Portland, OR.
    • In 1940, Clarence E. Ault, 23, born in Kansas, lived in Portland, OR. In 1935 he had lived in Hamilton Cnty, KS.
