Subject: RE: Origins: Diamond Joe--'diamond studded jaw?'
And the diamond Jo line was well known on both the Mississippi and the Ohio (can't say about the Missouri). I remember my Grandparents talking about the boats and the Diamond Jo's were among the lines mentioned. (I grew up on the Upper River.)
