Daniel Terryll Jones (August 17, 1800 – March 29, 1861) was a physician, an American politician and a U.S. Representative from New York.


Born in Hebron, Connecticut, Jones was the son of Daniel and Lydia White Jones. He received a liberal schooling,[1] and graduated from the medical department of Yale College in 1826. He began the practice of his profession in Amboy, New York.


Jones moved to Baldwinsville, New York, in 1841, where he continued to practice medicine and also served as Postmaster. A well-respected doctor, several prospective physicians studied with him before beginning their own practices. He married Eliza Lawrence in Washington D. C.[2]

Elected as a Democrat, representing New York's twenty-fourth district, to the Thirty-second and Thirty-third Congresses, Jones served from March 4, 1851, to March 3, 1855.[3] He was not a candidate for renomination in 1854 and resumed the practice of medicine in Baldwinsville. He became a Republican after the party was founded, and in 1858 he was Chairman of the Republican Convention at Syracuse, New York.


Jones died in Baldwinsville, New York, on March 29, 1861 (age 60 years, 224 days). He is interred at Riverside Cemetery, Baldwinsville, New York.[4]
