DE PUY, Henry Walter, lawyer, born in Pompey Hill, Onondaga County, New York, in 1820 ; died 2 February 1876. He studied law, and was admitted to the bar of New York. He was private secretary to Gov. Horatio Seymour during his term of 1853'4, and subsequently served as U. S. consul at Carlsrithe, and as secretary of legation at Berlin in 1854, which place he resigned to take part, in the political struggle of 1860. From President Lincoln he received the appointment of secretary of the state of Nebraska, organized that territory, and served as the first speaker of its legislature. He was also Indian agent to the Pawnees, under President Lincoln, and devoted much time and energy to reform the Indian service of the government. For several years he edited and published a newspaper in Indianapolis, Indiana, in support of the liberal party, being a warm friend of Governor Chase.
