Daniel Morris (January 4, 1812 – April 22, 1889) was a U.S. Representative from New York during the American Civil War.


Born in Fayette, New York, Morris attended the public schools and the Canandaigua Academy in Ontario County, New York, where he studied law. He was admitted to the state bar in 1845 and commenced practice in Penn Yan, New York. He served as district attorney of Yates County, New York from 1847 to 1850. He served as member of the State assembly in 1859.

Morris was elected as a Republican to the Thirty-eighth and Thirty-ninth Congresses (March 4, 1863 - March 3, 1867). He was not a candidate for reelection in 1866, and presently he resumed the practice of law. He died in Penn Yan, New York on April 22, 1889, and was interred in Lake View Cemetery.
