Dr. John “Doc” Holliday
( 1851 – 1887 )
A Gambler, gunfighter, and a dentist, he skirted both sides of the law throughout his life. One of the most famous characters of the American west, no doubt. Doc is mostly remembered for his friendship with Wyatt Earp, and the shootout at the O K Coral. The myths are many about his life, but he is believed by many to have killed between three and seven men, and participated in nine shootouts. I put a pic of “Big Nose” Kate up just because ( she died in Prescott, Arizona in 1940 and is buried in the Arizona Pioneer Home Cemetery in Prescott, AZ.).
Holliday is buried in Linwood Cemetery in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
His original marker had the date wrong, and the records for exactly where he is buried in the cemetery are lost, but these are pics of the current marker there.
