Jossel (Yossef) Meier Datnowsky.
Other spellings: Iosel Meyer, Iosel Meer Datnovsky.
Jossel was the son of Itsko (Itska, Yitzhak) and was born in 1830 in Dotnuva (Datnove), Lithuania, in the Kaunas Gubernia.
The couple apparently had at least two more children, who most likely didn't survive as they don't appear on a 1874 list, and no other trace of their existence exists.
