“Doc” Holliday sounds like one of those stupid made-up radio names. In my case, it isn’t.  No, my real name isn’t Bernie Liebowitz. Yes, the “Doc” part is a nickname. But, I really am a Holliday. I am a descendant of the famous gunfighter, John Henry Holliday.

I will spare you the genealogy lesson. But, here are some basic facts of my gunfighter connection. I was contacted by Karen Holliday Tanner back in the 1990’s. She said she was writing a book on Doc and was seeking info on my part of the Holliday family. There was a very prominent dude named John Holliday in the St. Louis area back in the 1800’s. My family in Missouri is descended from him. John Henry “Doc” Holliday’s family in Georgia is connected to him. What does this mean? It means my family watches the movie “Tombstone” at least twice per month.

Feel free to peruse my pics from our family trip to the actual Doc Holliday grave in Glenwood Springs this past summer.  I will try to do my best to never say "I'm your huckleberry". Remember, I said "try".
