[Ref. fr1:] FRANCIS RIDGE:

Francis Ridge indicates that there was a humanoid case at Effingham, Illinois, in 1910, exact date unknown.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in the the 1910's in Effingham, Illinois, USA, there was "A sighting of bigfoot was reported. One bigfoot was seen."

The source is indicated as "Eberhart, George M., A Geo-Bibliography of Anomalies, Greenwood Press, Westport, 1980, ISBN:0-313-21337-2".

Points to consider:

With so few information, all I can say is that this seems to be a "Bigfoot" report, not a UFO occupant report.
