The Park County Local History Archives has an interesting timeline on their website of significant events in Park County at:

If there events to be added, I am sure they would love to hear from you.

Jim,
Noticed that Elizabeth Entriken Land Claim was 1871 and William Bailey Land Claim was 1872. We are taught that the Entriken Cabin was built in 1864. Is it normal for 7 years to go by between building and the land claim?

1864 is the date commonly associated with Elizabeth Entriken, and William and Ann Bailey to have settled in the area, Jim. The land records, however, don't support that date - unless there are pre-emption claims that weren't converted to land patents. I need to research that next time I'm at the Park County Local History Archives in Fairplay.

There is typically a five year gap between the time land is claimed and when the patent is issued. This is the time period in which the homesteader (or claimant under pre-emption), or the purchaser of a claim has to "prove up" the claim.

William Bailey was issued a patent for 160 acres on March 20, 1874 for land he purchased (likely 5 years earlier in 1869). He may have purchased the land from Henry Crow, who had a saloon there and after whom Crow Hill is named. Interestingly, Henry Bigler and Wilber Steele were also issued patents on the same day for purchased land in the same section.

Bailey also was issued a patent on November 5, 1878 for a cash purchase of 160 acres (assumed purchased in 1873) that had previously been patented by two gentlemen and the State of Florida for an Agricultural college.

Elizabeth Entrikin (sic) was issued a patent on November 1, 1880, for a homestead entry on 148.36 acres adjoining Bailey's land.

Confused yet? I certainly am. Sounds like I have an investigation to do.
