John Glantz, living on section 24, township 5, range 49, in Washington county, Colorado, twenty miles northwest of Yuma, was born in Russia, November 25, 1860, a son of John and Catherine (Yost) Glantz, who were also natives of that country. The father followed farming in Russia and on coming to America in 1877 made his way to Fillmore county. Nebraska, where he worked by the day and month, thus gaining a start in the new world. He was desirous, however, of engaging in business on his own account that his labors might more directly benefit himself and later he rented land, which he continued to cultivate until 1S91. He then removed to Washington county, Colorado, where he took up a preemption and a homestead, proving up on two quarter sections. He continued to farm this, or else had it cultivated by his son, and resided upon the property throughout his remaining days, his death occurring in 1906. His widow survived him for a few years, passing away in 1912. John Glantz was a youth of seventeen years when he accompanied his parents on the voyage across the Atlantic to the United States. The greater part of his education has been acquired in this country and, possessing an observing eye and retentive memory, he is constantly adding to his knowledge. In 1885 he came to Colorado and took up a preemption in Washington county. He also secured a homestead adjoining and improved the place, continuing its further development and cultivation for about fifteen years. He then purchased a half section in Yuma county, which he also improved, and continued to operate that ranch for twelve years. In 1914 he came to his present place, comprising a half section of land, which he has also further developed and improved. It is now in excellent condition. He has since cultivated it and it is the third farm which he has improved, so that he has added in large measure to the material progress of the community. In 1881 Mr. Glantz was united in marriage to Miss Emma Yost, by whom he had eight children, as follows: John, who has passed away; Henry, a resident of Sterling, Colorado; William, who follows farming in Yuma county; Thomas, also an agriculturist of Yuma county, Colorado; Mrs. Margaret Cook [should be Kuecke], of Yuma; Lizzie, who makes her home in Harvard, Nebraska; and Carl and August, who died when five and three years of age respectively. On the 19th of October, 1914, Mr. Glantz was again married, his second union being with Charity N. (Carr) Draper, who had four children by a former marriage, namely: William Leo, who was born in August, 1884; C. Walter, whose birth occurred in June, 1886, and who passed away in 1890, when but four years of age; Prank N., whose natal day was October 25, 1889; and May, who was born October 10, 1892, and is now the wife of Ed Itten, a farmer of Yuma county. In community affairs Mr. Glantz has taken an active and helpful interest. He served for two terms on the school board and he cooperates in all movements for the public good. His political allegiance is given to the republican party but he does not seek nor desire office, preferring to concentrate his efforts and attention upon his business affairs. His ranching interests have been wisely and carefully conducted and he has gained a very substantial measure of success. He now makes a specialty of raising Belgian horses and high-grade cattle and he is also a stockholder of the Farmers Equity Elevator Company of Yuma and of the Farmers Union Elevator & Lumber Company of Yuma. His life record should serve to inspire and encourage others, showing what may be accomplished through individual effort and honorable dealing. Charity 1863-1941 # 49997234 is buried in Yuma, with Johannes 1859-1948 # 49997236.
So is Emma (Yost) Glantz 1881-1942 # 49997235.
