WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
ALL DATA IS ADDED TO THE SITE AS WE COME ACROSS IT, SO IF IT IS NOT HERE, WE DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO IT.

Lincoln County was created February 21, 1911, with land detached from Uinta County.
The county was named for Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth president of the United States.

In 1921, Lincoln County lost territory when Sublette County and Teton County were created.
