 Brief History from wikipedia:

 Kearny County was organized on March 27, 1888, by John O'Laughlin; A. B. Boylan; T. D. Brockett; E. S. Show; C. Co.
 Chapman. Named for General Philip Kearny, it contains the cities of Deerfield and Lakin.

 In 1887 the first one hundred miles of an irrigation ditch was constructed in the northern part of the county. This early attempt
 at irrigation was a major event in the agricultural development of the area.
