American Western Frontier Figure. A gunfighter and professional gambler, he is remembered for his friendship with Wyatt Earp and his involvement in the notorious Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona that resulted in the killing of three members of the Cochise County Cowboys, a loosely associated group of outlaw cowboys in Pima and Cochise County in the Arizona Territory. His father, Major Henry Holliday, a man of means and influence, had his son reburied in Oak Hill Cemetery, Griffin, Georgia. Father and famous son were buried beside one another.
