MR. and MRS. PEAK are the parents of three children, two daughters and one son--EVANGELINE (now the wife of MR. WILLIAM IRONS, residing near Potato Creek post-office, Montgomery County), ANNA M. and PORTER E. In politics MR. PEAK is a Republican, and an active and influential member of that party. Being of retiring disposition, he has never sought official honors of any kind, preferring to devote his entire attention and energies to his agricultural pursuits. In these, assisted by his prudent and industrious wife, he has been successful in acquiring a competence, and is regarded as a competent agriculturist and a worthy representative of the prosperous and enterprising farmers of Tippecanoe County. He has never been a member of any church, but has long contributed liberally to the support of the Methodist Episcopal church in his neighborhood, and is a man of strictly moral and temperate habits. By strict integrity in all business transactions and kind and genial manner he has won for himself a good name, which "is rather to be chosen than great riches," and to the fullest possible extent enjoys the confidence of the community in which he resides.
