DU LOIS, Gualterns, clergyman, born in Streefkerk, Holland, in 1666; died in New York City in October 1751. He was the son of Rev. Peter Du Bois, a clergyman of Amsterdam. He was called to New York in 1699 as a colleague of Henricus Selyns, whom he succeeded. The services of the Reformed Church at that time were conducted entirely in the Dutch language, Rev. A. Laidlie being the first clergyman that preached in English. Contemporary with Du Bois were Henricus Boel (1713'54), Johannes Ritzenia (1744'96), and Lambertius De Ronde (1751'95). Du Bois was a man of a quiet and peaceful spirit, prudent, judicious, and consistent, of high character, and greatly beloved. He was so universally respected that he is said to have been more like a bishop among the Dutch Churches of that, day than the pastor of a single organization. His correspondence with the classis of Amsterdam is voluminous, and marked by a spirit of moderation and kindness. He left a large amount of manuscript, including commentaries on different books of the Bible.
