The fifty-page "Hewerdine Family Record and Historical Sketch" was compiled by Thomas Sloan Hewerdine between 1932 and 1939. The lives of William Hewerdine (1775-1873) and his wife Ann (1796-1869) of Lincolnshire, England, are documented, along with brief descriptions of the lives of their five children, who emigrated to Illinois. The work is divided into six parts, including: "Home Life of an Earlier Day," "Our Small Town Stores," "Churches and Sunday Schools," "Health of the People," "Schools and Education," and a general description of life in early Champaign County.
Alton Hewerdine loaned the collection to the Library for photocopying in 1978.
