Immigrants that homesteaded land surely had for at least the first couple of years quite afew hardships. But most homesteaders had wifes and children to help them. There were some homesteaders that homesteaded as a single man while in their 20's, 30's, and 40's. And then there were some such as my gg-grandfather Asle Lien. For reasons he arrived in the United States twenty years after his family. To find land he went to Towner County, North Dakota near the Canadian border where by himself while he was in his 60's, 70', and 80's he homesteaded 480 acres. The picture shows possibly what type of house he lived in when he first arrived in North Dakota.
