His destination was Sault Ste Marie. Canada where he got his cousin John Vahlman. He arrived from Canada to USA in nov.1914 with name Thomas Myllyla, but then he disappeared with that name and took new name, Thomas Oja.

I found him in 1930 in Aberdeen, Grays Harbor, WA. He's 51, a roomer, Says widowed, married at 24, laborer in logging camp. WA Death Index says he died in Longview, Cowlitz, WA 30 Mar 1954. Could not find in earlier census. There's a Thomas Oja in earlier census in PA, but not same man. Also found a Tom Myllyla in MN on WWI Draft cards. Wife Hanna in Finland. Matches your birth date.
