The Winter Of Deep Snow

The Illinois stay of James Foster, Sr. has always seemed a mystery to me. He had homesteaded in Bedford County, Tennessee for over 20 years when he left for Illinois. He stayed for just a few years in Illinois before moving on to Benton County, MO.

The short stay may be answered by the Winter of Deep Snow. I ran across this article at: http://www.illinoishistory.com/deepsnow.htm.
