 Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Lane County was organized on June 3, 1886, by Richard Deighton; Thomas Hahn; Joshua Wheatcroft; John Schiereck; and
 William Walker. The county was named for James H. Lane and contains the town of Dighton. The town of Dighton was
 named for Richard Deighton, the surveyor who came in 1878 with four homesteaders claiming the four quarters that
 constituted Dighton.
