John Nash Beilstein, one of the successful young business men of Williamsburg, is assistant cashier of the Citizens
Savings Bank. He is a native of the county, born in Pilot township on the 29th of March, 1888, of the marriage
of Adam and Elizabeth E. (Nash) Beilstein, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. His paternal grandfather,
who was also named Adam Beilstein, and his maternal grandfather, John Nash, were both pioneers of this county.
John Nash Beilstein passed the days of his boyhood and youth upon the home farm and devoted much of his time to
the acquirement of an education. He was graduated from the Williamsburg high school with the class of 1906 and
for six months thereafter taught in the country schools. Subsequently he entered a telegraph office and took up
the study of telegraphy. After preparing himself for the position of operator he was so employed for five years
by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad. In 1913, however, he abandoned that line of work and was appointed
deputy county clerk of Iowa county, serving under Frank Owen. On the 1st of January, 1915, he was elected assistant
cashier of the Citizens Savings Bank, of Williamsburg, in which important position he is now serving.
Mr. Beilstein is a supporter of the democratic party and takes the interest of a good citizen in everything relating
to the public welfare. Fraternally he is connected with Marengo Lodge, No. 3o, K. P., and is popular in that organization.
He is one of the representative young men of Williamsburg and his ability, energy and integrity make his friends
confident that he will win gratifying success in the banking business with which he has lately become connected.
He is a worthy descendant of two of the leading pioneer families of the county and in promoting his private interests
never forgets the duty that he owes to his community but manifests a laudable public spirit.
