John Lampkin Taylor (March 7, 1805 – September 6, 1870) was a U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Born in Stafford County, near Fredericksburg, Virginia, Taylor completed preparatory studies. He studied law in Washington, D.C.. He was admitted to the bar in 1828 and commenced practice in Chillicothe, Ohio, in 1829. He served as a Major general in the State militia for several years.

He served as a clerk in the United States Department of the Interior from May 1, 1870, until his sudden death at his desk in Washington, D.C., September 6, 1870. He was interred in the family burying ground on the Taylor ancestral estate, "Mansfield," near Louisa, Virginia.
