Albert E. Johnson.

Albert E. Johnson, numbered among the most prosperous and enterprising agriculturists of Adair county, owns seven hundred and twenty acres of rich and productive land in Orient township.  This property includes the old home farm on which he was born on the 19th of September, 1875, his parents being Reason L. and Ada (Dillow) Johnson.  A sketch of his father, a retired agriculturist residing in Orient, appears on another page of this work.  In the acquirement of an education he attended the public schools and also pursued a commercial course in the Creston Business College.  He was but eighteen years of age when his father removed to the town of Orient, leaving him in charge of the home farm, the operation of which has claimed his time and energies continuously since.  In 1902 he purchased and also began the cultivation of a tract of three hundred and twenty acres of land lying across the road from the home place, while about 1905 he bought the home farm, comprising four hundred acres, so that his holdings now embrace seven hundred and twenty acres.  He cultivates all of his and in his undertakings has won a most gratifying and well merited measure of success, carrying on the work of the fields in a practical and progressive manner that insures the best results.  Mr. Johnson is a member of the board of directors of the Orient Savings Bank, in which institution both he and his wife are stockholders.

In February, 1899, Mr. Johnson was united in marriage to Miss Inez Swick, of Creston, Iowa, by whom he has four children, namely:  Merle, Lela, Doris and Reason Paul.  He gives his political allegiance to the democracy and enjoys an enviable reputation as a public-spirited, substantial and esteemed citizen of the county in which his entire life has been spent.
