Hyzer W. Jones, a surgeon of Utica, was born in New York Mills, Oneida county, March 26, 1884, and is the son of the late William W. Jones, M. D., who died in this city in 1912. His father practiced his profession as physician and surgeon in New York Mills, Whitesboro and Utica for thirty-five years, attaining a place of eminence in the medical fraternity. The mother of Hyzer W. Jones bore the maiden name of Mary A. Williams.

Hyzer W. Jones attended the Whitesboro high school in the acquirement of his preparatory education and took a general course in the College of Liberal Arts, Syracuse University, obtaining his A. B. degree as a member of the class of 1904. Entering the Syracuse Medical School immediately after leaving college he was granted his M. D. degree by that institution in 1907, after which he served his interneship in the Rhode Island Hospital of Providence from 1907 to 1909, inclusive. He located in Utica and began his practice in July of 1909 and has been in this city ever since, specializing in surgery, to whch he gives his exclusive attention. His ability in this branch of the practice is pronounced. He has studied closely, and his experience, covering fifteen years of intensive work, has heightened his efficiency until he is today recognized as one of the best surgeons in this section. Association with fellow practitioners through his membership in various medical societies has kept him in touch with advanced work done by his colleagues here and elsewhere. Among these organizations should be mentioned the New York State Medical Association and the Oneida County Medical Association, as well as the Utica Medical Club.

In 1917 Dr. Jones was married to Miss Lurena J. Rawdon, daughter of H. W. and Jennie E. Rawdon of Fredonia, New York. To this union has been born two children: Hyzer W. Jones, Jr., whose birthday was November 28, 1920; and Theodore Rawdon, born October 2, 1924. Dr. Jones is a Scottish Rite Mason of high rank, having taken all the degrees except the honorary thirty-third, and is a Noble of the Mystic Shrine. Ever loyal to the teachings and purposes of his craft he has had ample opportunity to exemplify the principles of Masonry in the course of his active and useful life. His church affiliations are with the Westminster Presbyterian church of Utica and he is a republican in politics, although the strenuous demands of his profession have never permitted him to take an active part in public affairs. Dr. Jones belongs to the Fort Schuyler, Masonic and Kuyahoora Rod and Gun Clubs, among whose memberships he has many warm friends.
