I am a descendant of Caleb Barton Entrikin, who settled in Caldwell County, Missouri in 1868. His family came from Columbiana County, Ohio, and was originally from Chester County, Pennsylvania. Part of the Chester County Entrikin family migrated from Pennsylvania to Green County, Wisconsin in 1850, then on to Belmond, Iowa, and in 1876 to McPherson County, Kansas. One of the family members who went to McPherson was Samuel Kersey Entriken. He is the son of Samuel Entriken of Chester County, who was married to Sarah Smith. Samuel Kersey Entriken was the brother of Dr. Smith Entriken and George Washington Entriken. Samuel Kersey Entriken died in 1892 and is buried in McPherson, Kansas, along with some of his sons. His grandson was Frederick Kersey Entriken, who operated an insurance company in McPherson. Caleb Barton Entriken's son William Henry Entrikin moved his family to Oklahoma around 1900, and eventually came north to the Abilene, Kansas area about 1905. I have gathered quite a lot of information about the Missouri/Kansas Entrikin families and would be very happy to exchange information. I know there were some cousins who lived in the Kansas City area. One of them was Harold Entrikin, whose wife's name was Stella. He was my grandfather's first cousin. Please let me know how I might help you. I live in Topeka, Kansas.
