John B. Vanhorn, cashier of the Atalissa Savings Bank at Atalissa, Muscatine county, is a native son of Iowa and, although quite a young man has shown a capacity for business which is a good prophecy of a successful career.
He was born in Louisa county, July 17, 1886, and is a son of Jesse and Eugenia V. ( Smith ) Vanhorn.
The father is also a native of Louisa county Iowa and the mother of Muscatine county, Iowa. They are now living upon the old homestead. A family of seven children came to bless their union : Pearl E., the wife of Earl B. Turkle, of Atalissa ; John B., our subject ; Carl H., at home ; Jessie L., now the wife of Don Hargrave, of Muscatine county ; Ernest R. and Erma M., twins, at home ; and Wilma, deceased.
John B. Vanhorn grew up under the favoring influences of loving parents and received his preliminary education in the public schools, graduating from the Atalissa high school. Receiving a certificate as a teacher, he taught for six months but, being attracted to a business career, he accepted a position as clerk in the Atalissa Savings Bank, which he held for eighteen months.
Having shown special inclination and ability in financial affairs, he was made assistant cashier and since June 1, 1910, has filled the position of cashier of the bank. By the exercise of good judgment and commendable enterprise he has greatly extended the sphere of the bank's influence, so that it is at the present time one of the highly flourishing institutions of this section.
On the 3d of May 1905, Mr. Vanhorn was united in marriage to Miss NORA N. LAMB, who was born at Atalissa,Iowa, January 13, 1888, and is a daughter of E. S. and Louise (STUCKER) Lamb, the father being a native of Ohio and the mother of Pennsylvania.
Her parents are now living at Atalissa.
Mrs. Vanhorn taught school for two and one-half years before her marriage and is a lady of many fine accomplishments. By her marriage she has become the mother of a daughter, DOROTHY M., born September 9, 1906.
Mr. Vanhorn is a member of Ionic Lodge No. 122, A. F. & A. M., of Atalissa, and is secretary of this organization. He and his wife are both identified with the Order of the Eastern Star. They occupy a handsome residence and are prominently identified with the social interests of Atalissa and vicinity. Mr. Vanhorn is a man of genial manner and has many friends not only among the patrons of the bank but throughout a wide region in Muscatine county.
