The following is from the book "The Goodspeed Biographical & Historical Memoirs of Central Arkansas", Garland County.Pg 549-550
Dr. J. C. Holiman has attained to deserved prominence and fame as a physician of Hot Spring Township.He was the third son of a family of five children born to Cornelius and Elizabeth (Plyer) Holiman, both natives of South Carolina, his birth occurring in South Carolina on February 3, 1823.
Dr. Joshua C. Holiman remained upon the home farm (in Alabama) until twenty-one years of age when he sold out and commenced attending medical lectures, entering in 1852 the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, under Preceptor Sulivan, of North Carolina, and a graduate of this University.Dr. Holiman took on course there and then practiced a few years, after which he again entered college and graduated at Tuscaloosa, Alabama.Flowing this he practiced in Carroll County, Mississippi, in 1845, after which he removed to Fayette County, Alabama, where he continued similarly occupied for twelve years.
Dr. Holiman was married in Mississippi, in 1845, to Rachael A. Martin, a daughter of John Martin of Choctaw County, Mississippi.They became the parents of thirteen children, eight of whom are now living:S. S. B., William W., Cornelius, Joshua C., Fannie B. (the wife of Shelby J. Johnson), Sarah E. (wife of Leroy Clonenger), Emma N. (now Mrs. Barnett), Joshanna, Fredonia A. (now deceased), Nancy E., Martha, Vida Erse and James W.
In 1867 Dr. Holiman emigrated from Mississippi to Arkansas, where he bought 314 acres of land, 240 of which are in Garland County, and seventy-four in Magnet Cove, Hot Spring County.
There are seventy-four acres under cultivation and twenty-five acres of fine orchard.The Doctor also owns one of the finest cotton-gins in the State, as well as saw, grist and shingle mills located in Hot Spring County.
He lost all his property during the war (Civil) and what he now has is a result of active energy and industry since that time.
His farm is well-improved and has good buildings upon it.His practice nets him a comfortable income, and he well deserves the position to which he has risen.He has, however, been retired from active practice since 1868, having turned his attention principally to farming and fruit growing.
He is a member of the I. O. O. F. and belongs to the Church of Christ.
