"Ty" Thomas James Wilson Homesteaded in Wasilla Alaska.
He started in 1932. This was before the Palmer Colony Project that brought families to Alaska at government expense.
He made a successful family farm with wife Anna Wilson.

He was a road overseer in Nez Perce in 1920.
He was living in the Orchard District.
I am looking to see if he owned a farm there.
Road experience probably gave him a hand up getting work in Alaska. He worked for the Alaska Road Commission here.

Thanks for the help
