Biography of Miles Autault


Ayrault, Miles, Tonawanda, was born in Perinton, Monroe county, N. Y., September 21, 1835. His father, John Ayrault, and family trace their descent from Dr. Nicholas Ayrault, who was one of the French Huguenots who came to this country about 1690. John Ayrault was engaged mostly in cattle raising and farming; his death occurred in September, 1861. Miles Ayrault was educated principally in the common school, although attending a few terms at the Collegiate Institute at Rochester, N. Y. He engaged in the hardware business at Elmira in 1862. In 1868 he changed from the hardware business to the manufacturing of the Wyckoff Patent Water Pipe. In 1876 he removed to Bay City, Mich., where he continued the same business till 1886, when he again returned to New York State, erecting the present plant and continued the manufacture of water pipe. He married, in 1861, Mary, daughter of Darius Talman of Perinton, and they have four children: John, Walter C., Miles, jr., and Helen A. McLennan. Mr. Ayrault is one of the prominent men of the town and has frequently been called to fill offices of trust by the people and always takes an active interest in church and educational matters.
