Logan County Title Company, a cornerstone of the
Lincoln community, was founded in 1903 by Lynn R. Parker to provide
abstract and title work to residential, commercial and agricultural
clients throughout the county. Today, 95 percent of the company's
focus is title work.
Lynn R. Parker's grandson, D. Brewster, took over
managing the title company in 1969 and served until his death, in
1994, when his wife, Joan, became president. Joan's sons continue
the family tradition, with Jonathan serving as vice president and
Christopher as director.
