     Johann and Anna arrived in New York, New York, on 3 May 1848, with their son Heinrich, aboard the Lesmonn, sailing as steerage class (below deck) passengers from the port of Bremen.14,15
     A short time later they arrived in Tazewell Co., Illinois, and bought a small farm in Washington Twp., in an area called Farmdale. Many other families from the Germanic states also settled in the same area, many of them marrying into the Glabe family.16
     Johann was known as Jacob Glebe after he immigrated to Illinois. While his children all adopted the spelling Glabe, it is not clear he ever did. His death certificte shows the Glabe spelling, but his tombstone has the traditional Glebe spelling.1,17,18
     Jacob and Katherine appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Tazewell Co., Illinois, enumerated 30 Aug 1850, reporting real estate valued at $500. Their children Heinrich and John were listed as living with them.19
     Jacob and Katherine appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Washington Twp., Tazewell Co., Illinois, enumerated 11 Jun 1860, reporting real estate valued at $1500 and personal estate of $150. Their children Heinrich, John, Caroline, Jacob, Levi and Sebastian were listed as living with them.20
     Jacob and Katherine appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Washington Twp., Tazewell Co., Illinois, enumerated 28 Jun 1870, reporting real estate valued at $3500 and personal estate of $480. Their children Heinrich, John, Caroline, Jacob, Levi and Sebastian were listed as living with them.21
     Jacob and Katherine appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Washington Twp., Tazewell Co., Illinois, enumerated 18 Jun 1880. Their children Jacob, Levi and Sebastian were listed as living with them.22
     He was a farmer, and apparently prospered. His farm grew to 120 acres and he become a prominent man in the community. A history of Tazewell County published in 1879 states that the settlers of the area were "a cultured, refined, and wealthy community" and lists him among them. He was described as "one of the early settlers of this township, and well and favorably known."23,24,25
     Johann died on 12 Jul 1892 in Farmdale, Tazewell Co., Illinois, at age 76.12,9,7 He was buried in Farmdale Cemetery, Washington Twp., Tazewell Co., Illinois.13
