Benjamin T. Aull, farmer, Knottsville, was born in Nelson County, Ky., April 27, 1826, and is a son of Benjamin Aull, a native of Maryland, who came to Kentucky when a boy, and brought his family to this county in the fall of 1826, where the subject of this sketch was reared on a farm, and educated in the common or subscription schools. He was married Jan. 16, 1847, to Miss Joanna, daughter of James Carrico. They had twelve children, of whom but six are living – William, Thomas, Francis, Helena, Marshall and Anna. One daughter, Catherine, died in August, 1872, at the age of eighteen years. Mr. Aull recently sold his farm in this precinct, and now owns a homestead of but twenty-nine acres, at Knottsville, where he lives rather retired. Mr. Aull is a worthy member of the Catholic church.
