Jacob Glade.

A fine farm of three hundred and one acres in Jackson township is the visible evidence of the prosperity of Jacob Glade, a well known stockman.  A native of Germany, he was born February 21, 1863, and is a son of Michael and Christina Glade, an account of whose lives appears elsewhere in this work.  Our subject remained with his parents until he became of age and then began his independent business career, renting land which he cultivated for three years.  At the end of that time he purchased a farm in Prussia township, this county, and devoted three years to its operation and improvement.  At the end of that time he sold the place and subsequently bought three hundred and one acres on sections 27 and 34, Jackson township, where he still resides.  He has made a number of improvements upon the place since it came into his possession and keeps everything in excellent condition.  He makes a specialty of raising Poland China hogs and is one of the most successful stock-raisers in his township.

In 1889 Mr. Glade married Miss Carolina Hofmann, who was born in Adair county, Iowa, of the marriage of Peter and Margaret (Bitner) Hofmann.  Her parents were both born in Germany, but in 1850 cam to America, locating first in La Salle county, Illinois.  After residing there for nineteen years they came to this county and located upon a farm.  Eventually, however, they removed to Minnesota, where they are still living.  Twelve of their fifteen children survive.  Mr. and Mrs. Glade have five children, Charles P.,  Emil W., Minnie M., Ida S., and Lucy R.

The democratic party finds in Mr. Glade a stalwart supporter, as he believes firmly in the wisdom of its policies.  He has served as road supervisor and school director and takes much interest in everything relating to the public welfare.  Fraternally he belongs to the Modern Woodmen of America at Bridgewater.  He is well known both within and without that order, and all who have been brought in contact with him recognize his ability and integrity.
