Among the able agriculturists of Pilot township is Albert Hradek, who owns and operates land on section. 15. He
was born in Newport township, Johnson county, Iowa, on the 4th of May, 1875, of the, marriage of John and Katerina
(Zakostleckey) Hradek, further mention of whom appears in the sketch of Frank Hradek.
Albert Hradek attended the public schools in the acquirement of an education and gained much valuable experience
in farm work through assisting his father, who was one of the best agriculturists of Iowa county, to which the
family removed in 1875. Following his marriage, in 1899, Mr. Hradek, of this review, located on eighty acres of
land, which his father subsequently deeded to him. Later he added to his holdings an eighty acre tract across the
road, and he finds that the cultivation of his quarter section of land leaves very little time for outside interests.
However, he is a stockholder in the Farmers Savings Bank of Williamsburg.
Mr. Hradek was married on the 10th of January, 1899, to Miss Mary Pitlick, a daughter of Martin Pitlick, one of
the pioneer and very successful farmers of Johnson county, more extended mention of whom is made in the sketch
of Frank Hradek. Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hradek have two children, Effie E. and Ella Eleanora.
Mr. Hradek gives his political allegiance to the democratic party as he believes in the wisdom of its policies,
and he and his wife are numbered among the communicants of the Roman Catholic church. He has gained a large measure
of success as an agriculturist as he is energetic and up to date and in all of his dealings with his fellowmen
has been unquestionably honest and upright. His sterling worth has gained him the respect and esteem of his community
and his many friends hold him in warm regard.
