Enos H. Nebeker (June 26, 1836 – January 6, 1913) was a United States banker who was Treasurer of the United States from 1891 to 1893.


Enos Hook[1] Nebeker was born in Covington, Indiana on June 26, 1836.[2] His parents had moved there from Piqua, Ohio.[2] His father was a country banker and farmer and was active in the Whig, and later the Republican, parties.[2] Enos received a common school education and studied for a year at Asbury University (now DePauw University).[2] He then returned home to work with his father.[2]

Nebeker was elected Auditor of Fountain County, Indiana in 1870 and held that office for four years.[2] He was a delegate to the 1880 Republican National Convention, where he supported James G. Blaine, and, after Blaine's elimination, James A. Garfield.[2]

He later campaigned for Benjamin Harrison.[2] In 1891, President Harrison named Nebeker Treasurer of the United States, with Nebeker holding office from April 25, 1891 to May 31, 1893.[2]

Nebeker died in Covington on January 6, 1913.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Nebeker married Mary E. Sewell in 1865. They had two children, Grace Nebeker and Sewell Nebeker (who served as his secretary during his term as Treasurer).[1]
