Alright joseph's myth, now you've really went and done it! What the hell?

I know already what you're likely thinking, "Ain't no way!", might pretty much sum it up, right?

Just hold on a minute, and see what you think when I try and explain things just a little bit better.

To participate in the infamous Second Great Awakening (in actuality a big snooze) you gotta get Joseph Smith into the upstate New York area between the years of 1790 to around 1840 and that's where Indonesia's highest peak comes into play.

The Sr. Smith moved his family south because of this one unruly mountain! Of course he didn't know it at the time, but now you do.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1815_er ... nt_Tambora


Not all of the factors that followed the next year (1816) are perfectly understood but it is widely accepted that this cataclysmic event caused the year without a summer. Definitely causing the Smith family to need to move from Vermont and into a southern state, that just so happened to be New York.

Maybe April 10th can be much more of an important date than April sixth was ever thought to be.

That's really stretching geologic history out to confirm your assertion concerning the reasoning behind the Smith family movement into the western New York area, Joey.

I know about the rumored death or killing in Vermont that may have added to the reason for the Smith family move, and you already probably have the knowledge that Joseph Smith's dad got involved in a tricky scheme where he lost the entire family's savings about the same time.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_Without_a_Summer

The volcano aftermath created a high amount of incredibly influential stress on almost everybody and especially during the historical 1816 year. Just about everyone became more vulnerable.

http://www.milbridgehistoricalsociety.o ... ummer.html

People began expanding into Illinois, Indiana and Missouri after this worldwide event took place, leaving the New England towns like never before. And coincidentally these are some of the fertile areas the first Mormons were forced into during the 1830-1840's when Smith moved (kicked out?) from town to town to town. I guess you and I previously never really looked at all of this in these ways. From these important details you can begin to see the building powder keg involved with maybe stressed out recent settlers.
