Along with some Holliday photos, she has been kind enough to share with me, Maureen Keillor sent the following link to the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House Museum in Fayetteville, GA.  The house originally belonged to the family of Dr. John Stiles Holliday, and she along with friends assisted in restoring it, as well preventing it from being torn down.
