Hilbert (Hib) Hanson purchased J.A. Johnson's stock interest. About one-third of the stock remained in the ownership of Keith Johnson. J.A.'s grandson, and Keith's mother, Ethel M. Johnson. Hib bought the outstanding stockholders' interests in 1977 and then Keith acquired the Lake County Abstract Co.. Hib sold the bank in 1998 to First Interstate Bank, its present owner.
