"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.
