DAVID LYNN TWITCHELL

I am having some confusion in my research. I have recently discovered we are possibly related to a Dave L. Twitchell listed as the father on a birth certificate in 1926. Other info includes the job as a telegraph operator and age as 33.

The person I find in the Chicago census is David Lynn Twitchell b.1887 in Iowa, lived in Chicago, wife Myrtle (Treloar)and son Lynn Treloar Twitchell. They ended up in Washington state.

I find a Lynn David Twitchell b.1892 WWII draft registration, contact Mrs. Myrtle Twitchell and David Lynn, age 33, WWI draft registration from 1918, contact Mrs.Maude Twitchell. The signatures look different on these two documents.

I found several newspaper articles referrring to the murder of a wife Nelle/Nellie by a David Lynn Twitchell in Spokane,WA Nov,1962. The age stated was the same in two articles and 10 years older in another. Is this the same David Lynn Twitchell? He would be about the correct age if the older # is correct.

"Louise" sent me some genealogy on David Lynn, but I have lost her contact info.
