Thomas Otis Holliday

THOMAS OTIS HOLLIDAY, farmer, Washington, Wilkes County, Georgia, is a son of Allen T. and Elizabeth (Zellars) Holliday. Her father, John Zellars, of Lincoln County, Georgia, was born Nov. 27, 1853, the third of eight children, six sons and two daughters. Of the sons, two died in infancy.

He assisted on the farm and attended school until 1873, when he took charge of the farm and has had it under his supervision since. He has managed it with success, quite realizing his expectations.

Mr. Holliday was married Dec. 4, 1874, to Miss Kittie A., daughter of T. P. Burdette, of Wilkes County, who has borne him six children, four boys and two girls, all of whom are living. He is a consistent member of the Baptist Church, and an estimable member of the community in which he lives.
