As you wished me to keep you posted about grandmother, I will drop you a card this morning, as George told Judy yesterday if we wanted to see her alive we would have to go pretty soon for she was failing fast and would not last much longer. Aunt Lydia is very poorly also and they do not have any hopes for her getting well.
The Town of Ausable was formed on March 29, 1839 from part of the Town of Peru. Edward Everett, John and Jehiel Beardsley and Matthew Adgate were among the first to come to the area about 1786. Ausable is named after the sandy river discovered by French explorers - Rivière au Sable.
