Scope and Content

The papers in this group span the years 1830 to 1885, with the bulk of the material from the years 1836-1846.

A majority of the material consists of letters written to Charles Hayward of Ottawa , LaSalle County, Illinois, concerning a debt he owed to John L.H. McCracken and the subsequent law suit and court ordered sale of Hayward's property. The W.J. Watkins estate was involved in the suit since McCracken wanted any money owed Hayward by the estate to be paid to him. There are several unrelated letters dealing with family matters and two wagers on the 1844 (Clay vs. Polk ) presidential election. Also included are an account book for an unidentified inn (presumably the Fox River House since this tavern is mentioned in the wagers) and an inventory of the estate of Charles Hayward who died in 1849.

A small group of early twentieth century items, newspaper clippings, receipts, and a political poster, dealing with the related Gleim family of Illinois are included.
