Mathew Oliver Jones, M.D.    

Mathew Oliver Jones, M.D., was born of Quaker parents in Southampton County, Va., on the 1st day of May, 1822. In early childhood he emigrated with his parents to the State of Ohio, and studied medicine in the office of Dr. Flanner, in Mount Pleasant, Jefferson Co., Ohio, attending one term of medical lectures in the Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania during the winter of 1841-42. In December, 1843, he came to Bridgeport, forming a partnership with Dr. A. Stanley in the practice of medicine. In the autumn of 1849 he returned to the University of Pennsylvania, where the degree of M.D. was conferred upon him in March, 1850. He remained in Bridgeport, devoting his entire attention to the study and practice of his profession, until the spring of 1861, when he removed to the city of Pittsburgh, where he now resides, enjoying a large practice and an honorable position in his profession. On the 29th of April, 1851, he was married to Margaret C., daughter of Capt. Elisha Bennett, of Bridgeport, by whom he had two children, a son and a daughter. The son, Dr. W. W. Jones, is now engaged in the practice of medicine in Allegheny City, Pa. The daughter remains with her father. In 1844, Dr. Jones assisted in organizing the first medical society in Fayette County, which, however, was short-lived. He is the author of a paper on the causes and treatment of vomiting during pregnancy, which not only attracted much attention among the profession in this country, but was extensively published in the medical journals of England and other European countries. He is a member of the Allegheny County Medical Society, also of the Medical Society of the State of Pennsylvania, and of the American Medical Association. In politics he was an old-time Abolitionist, and is now a Republican. His religion is that of the Society of Friends.
