|Oops! Although Datus lived many years in Iowa, he was in fact born in DeRuyter, New York, along with several of his siblings. The family was part of a religious community (Seventh Day Baptisis) that began in Rhode Island and gradually migrated across the Gt. Lakes and into Wisconsin, Iowa by the 1850s.|
