Ambrose Jett

Ambrose (Bruce) Jett bought a quarter of land just east of the railroad tracks, and south of Ypsilanti, in September of 1916. He married Nora Hayes that fall. Two years later, in 1918, she died during a flu epidemic.

In June of 1927, Ambrose drove to Plattesville, Wisconsin, to marry May, w home he had met earlier while May was doing sewing for his mother. Accustomed to small farms in Wisconsin, May was impressed with Bruce's large farm in the valley.

Ambrose and May Jett had one daughter, Carol, who married William Guymer, and moved to Mandan, North Dakota. Carol taught music in the schools.

In 1982, at the time that the Ypsilanti Community Centennial Book was published, Bruce had passed away, and May was living in an apartment in Mandan, where she was still doing sewing for people.
