Johnny Datto fought as "Young Datto" while on the West Coast of the United States. It is also possible that a certain "Johnny Pastrano," whom BoxRec has documented as boxing in northern California during this era, may have been this boxer.

According to the U.S., Social Security Death Index, 1935-2014 database on, one Johnny Datto was born on September 21, 1907 and died during December 1979 with his last residence located in Garrison, North Dakota. He received his Social Security number in North Dakota before 1951.

According to his page on the Find A Grave website, one Johnny Datto was born during 1907 and died during 1979. He is buried in the Saint Nicholas Cemetery in Garrison, North Dakota.

According to a marriage record in digital form in the California, County Marriages, 1850-1952 database on the FamilySearch genealogical website, one Johnny Pastrano, a 22-year-old native of the "Phillipine" Islands and a "Prize Fighter," married one Helen M. Pacho, a 20-year-old native of Arizona, in Santa Ana, California on December 23, 1922.

According to the U.S. Census Records on, one Helen Datto, a 23-year-old married native of California and a "Sales Lady," was living with her 2-year-old son, John Datto, and one female lodger in Cleveland, Ohio. Helen's husband isn't listed among the household members. She is listed as being married at the age of 16.

And according to other genealogical records, it appears that Helen Pacho/Pastrano/Datto was the sister of another noted boxer: Bobby Pacho. If true, Bobby Pacho was Johnny Datto's brother-in-law.
