Early Life

Maxcy was born in Stonewall, Louisiana on 7 Nov 1893. He was the son of Maxcy Scott and Adlena DeWitt [1]


As a young man, Max was a farmer in Delta county Colorado.[2] According to family tradition his father, Maxcy Gregg relocated the family from Louisiana to the area around Hotchkiss, Colorado in 1906 in search of a healthier climate. It seems Max's older brother, Arthur, suffered from consumption or some similar lung trouble.[3]

Max served in World War I. He was living in Hotchkiss, Colorado when he enlisted in the Army. He entered the service at Kelly Field on December 14, 1917. Max served as a cook in the 84th Aero Squadron. He was discharged at Camp Funston, Kansas on February 5, 1919.[4][5]

Max was part of a generation that registered for the draft for both world wars.[6]
