Pioneers on the Plains - January 10, 2020

Q: Eastern Kansas is bracing for a winter storm this weekend that will likely bring several rounds of snow and freezing rain. As bad as that sounds, times were even tougher on the pioneers. According to the Kansas Historical Society, one blizzard was so bad that an estimated 100 Kansans froze to death. In what year did this happen? 

(Here's a hint: It happened during the "Blizzard of eighteen-eighty..." - what?)
