William Bates Armstrong

The Armstrongs came from Canada and homesteaded four miles west of Montpelier, on Beaver Creek, in 1904. In 1909, Mr. Armstrong traded his farm for another, building a house there, on what was known as the Jett farm in 1982, when the Ypsilanti Community Centennial Book was published.

William Armstrong died in 1914, and Mrs. Armstrong followed in 1916.
