Biography of Ephraim L. Ladd
Franklin County, VT Biographies





Ladd, Ephraim L., born in Milton, July 26, 1832, is the second of four children born to Alfred and Samantha Ladd. He was reared on his father's farm, and attended the district schools of the town, but when he attained his majority he traveled about for some five years. In March, 1848, he married Fanny A. Leonard, after which he came to Georgia and began farming. Five years later he sold out and went to Illinois; and there engaged in the same pursuit, but ten years later failing health necessitated his return to Vermont, where he has since resided. Mr. Ladd, when he started out in life, had no capital save his determination, but his business life has been reasonably successful. His father was a substantial and well to do farmer, and of the latter's estate he inherited some property. Although not a church member he has contributed to the maintenance of the Baptist church at Georgia Plains, and other societies as well. In town affairs he has held the offices of selectman and lister, and in 1890 he was one of the town auditors. The children of Ephraim L. and Fanny A. Ladd are Oscar B., Caroline (Mrs. Nathan N. Post), and Hattie (Mrs. Frederick W. Bliss).
