Peter Kordick.

Peter Kordick, numbered among the substantial and energetic agriculturists of Adair county, owns and operated an excellent farm of two hundred and forty acres on section 5, Jackson township.  His birth occurred in Lee county, Illinois, on the 3d of August, 1869, his parents being Joseph and Catherine (Zierhut) Kordick, who were born, reared and married in Germany.  In 1868 or 1869 they emigrated to the United States, locating in Illinois, in which state they resided for about twelve years.  On the expiration of that period, in 1881, they came to Adair county, Joseph Kordick buying the northwest quarter of section 6, Jackson township, while subsequently he made additional purchase until his holdings embraced five or six hundred acres of land.  His demise occurred in 1903 or 1904 and thus the community lost one of its prosperous and respected citizens.

Peter Kordick, who was a youth of twelve years when his parents established their home in this county, attended the district schools in the acquirement of an education.  General agricultural pursuits have claimed his attention throughout his entire business career and after his father's death he purchased one hundred and sixty acres from the estate, while later he bought another tract of eighty acres, now owning two hundred and forty acres of rich and productive land in Jackson township.  He annually gathers good crops which find a ready sale on the market, and his present prosperity is the merited reward of his well directed industry and enterprise.

Mr. Kordick is unmarried and makes his home with his brother Joseph.  He is a communicant of the Catholic church.  The period of his residence in this county now covers more than a third of a century and he was won an extensive circle of friends and acquaintances within its borders.
