Omaha, Nebraska, 1911-1915

D. W. Line was born in Iowa, circa 1887. His first name may be Deloss or Deloro, depending on if one checks the federal census of 1910 or 1920.[c] Despite having different first names, they appear to be the same person, as they have the same birth year, the same birth place, and similar occupations. Line worked as a draftsman and an architect in Omaha.[2][3]
