Lon, I wonder if this apple could've been on a handwritten list and 
been misread. Judging on the time, the apple Jewet might be Jewel, ie 
Jewet's Red or Nodhead. Not sure where this orchard is, but if anywhere 
in the greater Northeast/Central, it could be possible. Sometimes 
spelled Jewett as well. Tree is usually naturally and noticably smaller 
then other standards, almost 3/4 or half size. Often forms a 
rounded 'head', which is off-center from the trunk, or leaning. Two old 
trees are in my town here in Maine, approx. 80 years old. Fairly common 
old variety that a few trees were planted of in many orchards.
