It is most helpful if you can give us specific information that you are looking for, or what information you already have. This keeps us from searching for information you already have. I did some searching on this website and on the I-net - FamilySearch, Ancestry, etc. There is more than one Ezra Hewitt and not all entries include a middle name.

History of Whiteside County, Illinois:
Paragraph 4 Ezra B. Hewitt is listed as one of the trustees of school lands in township twenty-two north, range 6 east of the fourth principal meridian. That would be Genesee Township.

Two researchers have this family on: RootsWeb's World Connect Project

I recommend you contact Marilyn Anderson, President of the Whitesice Co. Genealogical Society, and head of the Sterling Library Genealogical Dept. SPL-Genealogy@comcast.net, Phone:815-625-1370. I'm not sure what type of record she would have since he was out of the state by 1856. I don't think they even had Farmer's Plat maps at that time.

Best of luck,
