Biography of John Ould
Oswego County, NY Biographies





Ould, John, was born in England July 5, 1828, a son of Richard and Elizabeth (Truscott) Ould, also natives of England, where the mother died aged thirty three years. John came to America when twenty years of age, settling in Wampsville, Madison county, N. Y., where his father died aged fifty six years. Our subject learned tailoring in England, at which he has ever since been engaged. He resided in Madison county seven years, then removed to Syracuse, where he remained four years. Coming to Oswego in 1858 he associated himself with Lyman Strong in the merchant tailoring and clothing business, the firm name being Strong & Ould. This firm dissolved in 1861, but the business, at first under the name of Klock & Ould (with some intervening changes in the style of the firm), now John Ould & Co., has continued to the present time, in all thirty three years. They carry a full line of clothing, men's furnishings, and merchant tailoring goods. Mr. Auld has the reputation of being the finest cutter in the county. His wife was Susan M. Shepard of Madison county, a daughter of Ira and Mary Shepard, and their children are: Harris Truscott, born July 27, 1858, who is in business with his father; Sophia S., born January 26, 1860, who married James M. Hart; and John A., born December 10, 1867. Mrs. Ould died in 1882.
