For their first six years of marriage, Carl and Ann lived in his Uncle Andrew Sholin's house in Homer, Alaska. The two boys were born in the upstairs of that house.

Carl Albert Sholin's Homestead property, U.S. Land Office Serial No. 06400, was located at Kachemak Bay, Alaska, and contained 80 acres, being W 1/2 NE 1/4 section 20, T. 6 S., R. 13 W, Seward Meridan in what is present day, downtown Homer, Alaska. The land was described as 1) sandy loam, 2) about half dry and half wet and swampy, 3) broken, and 4) spruce, birch, and underbrush.

On the "Final Proof Testimony of Claimant," dated 10 April 1930, Carl stated he had a wife and two children, a girl and a boy. Three absences from his land of 3 to 5 months each were noted since he had applied for the land. These were for the purpose of supporting his family and had been to Homer Spit and Halibut Cove.

Carl had made the following improvements: a house, 12x18, which had cost $400; a root house, 8x12, costing $50; a chicken house, 8x10, costing $50; a well, 14 feet, costing $15; a fence of 500 feet of wire and 300 feet of rail costing a total of $35; 1/2 miles of telephone line costing $33, and 10 acres of hay land cleared to cut with a scythe! He stated that he had "Grubbed trees and brush from the land, to use for hay land as above described to the amount of 10 acres." He also had foxes on his uncle's (Andrew's) homestead Serial No. 04052, for whom Carl was the caretaker. In addition, as of 1928, he used one acre for vegetables and berries and grazed a cow and calf for family use. A witness, Nels Goran Svedlund - a 29 year old marine engineer - stated that Carl grew, "potatoes, vegetables, berries...rhubarb, and grazed cattle." Rhubarb! Now there's a Swede's delight!

According to the Tacoma News Tribune, 18 April 1946 obituary of his sister, Ruth H. Ellis, Carl lived in Homer, Alaska.

According to his mother's Skamania county Pioneer - Stevenson, 29 November 1924 obituary Carl was with his father, Olof, in Alaska.
