In Reply to: Holliday Family stories by Kathleen Holliday of 2383

found this in the 1900 census Alaska

Name: George E Holliday
Home in 1900: Chicken Creek, Northern Supervisors District, Alaska
Age: 31
Estimated birth year: 1869
Birthplace: California
Race: White
Relationship to head-of-house: Head

No other persons living with him

Also I did a little reseach on the Walt Diney Dooc of the seven dwarfs...in an article about the seven dwarfs it said that when they named Doc it was after and here is a statement about it

In bringing the characters to life, Walt insisted each dwarf had to have a definite personality, so work began in differentiating them by voice, gesture and name. Walt claimed he knew some domineering doctors, so they named the dwarfs’ bossy leader, Doc. They made Doc stand well back on his heels with his wrists pressed to his hips, to convey pompousness.

So perhaps your Great Uncle had another trade as a doctor


Also from 1880 census
