Near Diamond in Newton County, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
William Williams married Moses Carver's niece, Sarah Jane Carver, in 1853 and they built their home beside this spring. Their two children, Daniel and Martha, played with George Washington Carver as they grew up on the farm.
