Webber, William T. Papers, 1830-1837 | Illinois History and Lincoln Collections
William T. Webber (1785-1838) was an early settler of Champaign County, Ill., having moved his family there from Shelby County, Ky. in 1833. By the time of his death, Webber was one of the area's most prominent land owners. The collection mainly contains photocopies of documents relating to his real estate interests, although an autograph letter to Webber regarding the Second Great Awakening is notable.
The papers were donated to the Library in 1998 by Elizabeth N. Sadtler, of Rockford, Ill. For the papers of William T. Webber's son and grandson, see the Thomson R. Webber and William B. Webber collections.
