Horatio Seymour Jones

Horatio Seymour Jones was born August 26, 1867, in Liberty, Clay County, Missouri.  His family removed to Kansas City three years after his birth, and his education was secured in the public schools of this city.  After his term of school here he attended William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., taking the classical course, and was graduated as an A. B. in 1884. 

   His father, Dr. L. J. Jones, was one of the pioneer physicians of this city, and helped organize the first medical society the town ever had.  He was also one of the organizers of the Kansas City Medical College, and was in many respects among the foremost of local physicians.  From him young James inherited a liking for medicine, and soon after his graduation from William Jewell College he took up the study of the profession at the University Medical College.  He graduated from that institution in 1888, and entered immediately on professional practice.

   He was stationed at the Wabash Railroad Company's hospital in this city and Springfield, Ill., as house surgeon, and afterwards held the same post at the Memphis Railroad Company's hospital in Kansas Cit and Memphis, Tenn.  He then took up regular practice.

     Dr. Jones is a member and physician of Mayflower Camp, Royal Neighbors of America, holds membership in the Modern Woodmen of America, and the Masons, the Missouri State Medical Association, and Tri-County Medical Association, composed of Clay, Platte, and Clinton counties.
