James Hewett, father of Frank


SHERMAN FRANK HEWETT, popularly known as "Frank Hewett," a prominent figure in the commercial life of Clark County, who has also rendered good service in public office, was born in Augusta, Wis., Sept. 4, 1865, son of James and Henrietta (Brown) Hewett. He was educated in the local schools, and at the age of 15 years began to accompany parties in the work of surveying, a profession in which he in time became expert. Afterwards he became associated with his father in the lumber business and other enterprises of a commercial or agricultural nature. Later on the old Hewett homestead, a tract of 160 acres in Pine Valley Township, he gave his attention to dairy farming successfully, and was a member of the Farmers' Co-operative Creamery. For four or five years Mr. Hewett served as city treasurer of Neillsville, making a good record as a capable and trustworthy public official. In 1909 he became county surveyor, in which position he has since served with ability and to the satisfaction of the citizens of the county. He is a member of the Masonic order, in which he has advanced as far as the Commandery, being a Knight Templar.


Mr. Hewett was married, Dec. 19, 1887, to Blanche Robinson, who was born at Weston Rapids, Clark County, daughter of David and Emma (Brown) Robinson, her parents being pioneer settlers in this county. He and his wife have one daughter, Helen. Mrs. Hewett is a member of the Eastern Star Lodge, and she and her husband are popular members of Neillsville society.
