Major Oliver Mayhew Ladd - The granddaughter of Major Oliver Mayhew Ladd, 1885-1964, is looking for information on him during his military service. According to family oral history, he served mostly in the Philippines, from about 1910 until his retirement in 1931. He joined the U.S, Army after attending the Colorado School of Mines in Golden Colorado.

He went to the Philippines as a Captain in the US Army after the Spanish American War and was Provost Marshal when Dewey came to Philippines. He was the first commander of the Philippine Scout Battalion, part of the US Army. He retired as a Major in 1931 after serving as aide to General MacArthur in the Philippines.

The granddaughter also would appreciate information from anyone who knew his sons (her father and his brothers), who were children when they lived in the Philippines. They are Chester Reed Ladd, Oliver Ladd, Jr and Dick Ladd.
