He was born in Waterville, Oneida county, New York, on the 20th of November, 1883, his parents being Gomer B. and Jenny A. Jones of that place. His grammar and high school education, obtained at Waterville, was supplemented by study in Syracuse University, which he entered in 1902 and from which he received the degree of Bachelor of Science four years later, while in 1909 the degree of M. D. was conferred upon him by the same institution on the completion of a course medicine. Dr. Jones located for practice at Clark Mills, Oneida county, New York, where he followed his profession until July, 1917, when he entered the army for service in the World war.

Returning to Clark Mills, he there continued in the practice of medicine until April, 1920, when he went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for postgraduate work, devoting his attention particularly to the study of diseases of the eye, ear, nose and throat at various institutions of that city and under the instruction of distinguished physicians. It was in 1921 that he came to Utica, where he has since remained. He is a member of the Oneida County Medical Association, the New York State Medical Association and the American Medical Association.
