Biography of William Nash
Member of 60th Ohio General Assembly - Senate

WILLIAM NASH, Senator from the Eighth District, was born July 13, 1817, at South Hadley, Massachusetts. He learned the printer's trade in the office of The Republican, Springfield, Massachusetts.

He removed to Ohio in 1838, and settled in Gallipolis, where he has ever since resided.

He served as County Treasurer during the years 1855 and 1856, and served eight years as County Auditor, beginning in March, 1859. He was a member of the last State Board of Equalization. When elected Senator, he was the editor of The Gallipolis Journal. He is a bachelor.

We take the following from The Winchester Times:

In the Ohio Senate, is a quiet gentleman, rather low and heavy set, and about fifty five years of age, who is a good thinker and fine reasoner, and, with the pen, is quick and ever ready to do battle for his side, equal to any in the Senate. We allude to William Nash. He is a great reader and close student.
