One of a kind artifact preserved at Holliday-Dorsey-Fife house



Thanksgiving! A one of a kind artifact was conserved thanks to the support of the 440 who attended the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife Museum’s Cemetery Spirit Walk in October. Bryant Martin of The Great Frame Up and Deborah Riddle, museum volunteer and organizer for the Walk, are shown admiring the drawing of Francisco and Martha E’Dalgo that will again take its place in the museum.
Francisco was a 12 year old orphan after the Mexican American War. He was brought to the United States by Henry B. Holliday. Henry raised the boy in Griffin along with his son, John Henry Holliday aka “Doc” Holliday. Francisco was an adopted brother to Doc and grew to admire Henry as a father figure. The drawing was done of Francisco and his wife Martha. It was purchased for the museum in 2005 from Francisco and Martha’s great grandson.
