Footer Text: Lorem ipsum dolor OUR HISTORY Wells Abstract traces it’s history back to the late 1800’s.  At that time Doug Wells and his partner Mr. DeTienne (whose first name is lost to history), established Wells and DeTienne abstracting.  With offices in the Court House in Hannibal, they were able to provide quick service for the local banks and attorneys. By 1900, the company was known solely as Wells Abstract Company.  It was operated for almost 100 years by the Mills family.  In 1994, Loren Mills Jr. retired, and James Lemon was hired as manager.  The former chief office counsel and Jefferson City Regional Manager of Guaranty Land Title, James has been working in the title industry for over 25 years.  Nicky Nelson, head of title services, has been with Wells Since 2007.
