At one of the first mines he visited, Serebrovsky met Jack Littlepage, then age 33, who was a successful mining engineer. Littlepage initially dismissed Serebrovsky's offer of work in the USSR stating that he "did not like Bolsheviks" as they "seem to have the habit of shooting people, especially engineers." However Serebrovsky persevered and persuaded Littlepage to emigrate to the USSR with his family.
Littlepage arrived on 1 May 1928 with his wife and two young daughters. In a Soviet propaganda leaflet, Littlepage was said to have been "drawn to the Soviet Union by the grand scale of our construction work, the ideas of great Stalin, the chance to unfold his talents freely." The financial incentive was left unstated, but the leaflet, penned by Serebrovsky, soundly reflected at least the non-pecuniary elements by which Littlepage was motivated. Littlepage soon learned Russian, was renamed Ivan Eduardovich and with unflagging drive "set about verifying calculations, designs, estimates, plans of work."
At the time of the Second Partition of Poland, in 1793, King Poniatowski wrote a letter to Littlepage, apologizing for being unable to pay him with a proper pension (at that time, Poniatowski and the Polish treasury were both in debt). Poniatowski promised him a sum of 2,000 ducats, with a note that Poniatowski was unable to pay them to him, but he authorized Littlepage to seek compensation even after Poniatowski's death. At that point, Littlepage started working for the Russians; Russian ambassador to Poland, Jacob Sievers, promised to compensate Littlepage in return for information from the royal court.

In 1795, the year of the third and final partition of Poland, Littlepage was to return to the United States, carrying a letter from King Poniatowski to George Washington. Littlepage, however, remained in Poland until 1800, and in Europe until 1801. According to his own account, he wanted to accompany Poniatowski on his exile into Russia, but was prevented from doing so by the order of the Russian Empress Catherine II. Littlepage then remained in Poland until the death of Poniatowski in 1798. He later returned to the United States in late 1801, and died at Fredericksburg, Virginia on 19 July 1802.
In a series of articles for "The Saturday Evening Post" Littlepage described a continuing "Far Eastern gold rush" and the "intrepid men and women" prospecting the wastes of Eastern Siberia. Even when responding to questions from the US War Department, Littlepage did not mention the legions of slaves deployed to extract the gold in lethal conditions in the frozen wastelands of the Gulag in north-eastern Siberia. Littlepage authored a book on his experience: "In Search of Soviet Gold" jointly with foreign correspondent for the Saturday Evening Post and The Christian Science Monitor Mr Demaree Bess (Jan 1, 1938), ISBN 0405030444.
Littlepage subsequently returned to Poland, where he advanced quickly. He served as a royal secretary, and became one of the king's favorites, receiving the post of chamberlain in 1786. In 1787 he headed a diplomatic mission to the Russian Empire in Kiev, and later that year, he headed an unsuccessful mission to France, with the goal of forging an alliance between Poland, France, Austria, and England. In the aftermath of this mission, Poniatowski made Littlepage his representative in France, replacing the ailing count Monnet. After about a year, Littlepage left France (where he met Thomas Jefferson), and observed the Russo-Turkish War. By 1798 he returned to the Polish capital, Warsaw, and was sent to Italy and then Spain (Madrid). In 1790 he received the Order of Saint Stanislaw. In 1791, Littlepage was back in Warsaw, and carried out various diplomatic missions for the Patriotic Party (a group that supported the Constitution of May 3, 1791).
Holladay's mother was a niece of George Poindexter (1779–1853), who from 1820 to 1822 had served as the second Governor of Mississippi. He was also related to Lewis Littlepage (1762–1802), the half-brother of Holladay's grandfather, Waller Holladay (1776–1860). Littlepage had a remarkable career as a diplomat in the service of the last Polish king, Stanisław August Poniatowski, and the Russian Empire.
Lewis Littlepage's father, James Littlepage, was the first Clerk of Louisa County, and was elected to the House of Burgesses of Hanover in 1764. Lewis was the elder of two children of his father's second marriage, about 1760, to Elizabeth Lewis. After his father's death, his mother married Major Lewis Holladay, of Spotsylvania County. This resulted in Littlepage having a half-brother, Waller Holladay (1776–1860), the father of U. S. Representative Alexander Holladay (1811–1877).

Waller purchased land around Prospect Hill beginning in 1803 using an inheritance from his half-brother, General Lewis Littlepage.
