"Seventeen in Pioneer Family"
One of the early settlers of the Tabor vicinity was Amos Williams, who with his wife and family settled two miles west of Tabor.
Although not a member of the group who founded the town and college, he arrived the same year, 1852, coming from Kentucky, and stopping for a while in Missouri. The family arrived in two large wagons drawn by Ox teams, one of which was traded for 80 acres of timber land on which the family lived, and where the seventeen children were raised. The trade for land was made with John Rhode, one of three brothers, Joseph, John and Dan, who settled in this locality a few years earlier.
Amos Williams remained upon this land until his death in 1876.
