John Kosar.

John Kosar owns and cultivates one hundred and twenty acres of land on section 29, Richland township, comprising one of the valuable farms of that township, and he enjoys an enviable reputation as a substantial and enterprising agriculturist of the county.  His birth occurred in Adams county, Iowa, on the 28th of November, 1881, his parents being John and Barbara (Marik) Kosar, who emigrated to America in 1877 and took up their abode in Adams county, this state.  The father first purchased eighty acres of land and subsequently bought another tract of the same size, devoting his attention to agricultural pursuits throughout his active business career.  He passed away in Adams county on the 17th of July, 1912, but is survived by his widow, who lives on the home farm.

John Kosar of this review was reared to manhood under the parental roof and acquired his education in the district schools.  In the spring of 1906, when in his twenty-fifty year, he started out as an agriculturist on his own account, operating a farm which he rented from his father and which he inherited after the latter's demise.  The property embraces one hundred and twenty acres of land on section 29, Richland township, Adair county, and is a valuable and productive tract, the well tilled fields annually yielding bounteous harvests as a reward for the careful supervision and the energy of the owner.  Mr. Kosar is a stockholder in the Nevinville Telephone Company and is widely recognized as one of the enterprising and representative young citizens of his community.

In the fall of 1906 Mr. Kosar was united in marriage to Miss Josephine Kreisinger, who is a native of Bohemia and emigrated to this country as a young woman of twenty years.  To them have been born three children, namely:  Albina B., Nellie M. and William J.  Mr. Kosar gives his political allegiance to the democracy, and he and his family are members of the Western Bohemian Brotherhood Association.
