Query: SCOTT of Monroe County

I'm looking for a booklet printed in Blackhawk, Indiana by Charles Morton ("Charley" or "C.M.")SCOTT in approximately the 1940's about the "SCOTT Family" [I do not know the actual title]. It is a genealogy beginning with Simon SCOTT who was kidnapped from Scotland in the mid to late 1700's. Simon landed in the Carolinas where he was bound out to a family, working as a servant until he reached manhood. Simon lived approximately from 1742 to approximately 1784. He was married to Mary "Polly". Her last name was either WATKINS or HAM (possibly HORN or HOME). They had 3 known sons: Jonathan (1778 - 29 Nov 1845), died 8 miles west of Bloomington, Monroe Co, Indiana) [married to Catherine BORDERS (born 3 Mar 1787 in Rowan, North Carolina; died after Feb 1846)];William (born abt 1782); and Daniel (born abt 1784 probably in South Carolin, died in 1870 in Hamilton Co, Illinois. I am hoping this booklet is in a public library but have been unsuccessful locating it thus far.
