My cousin was the legendary John Henry Holliday, better known as Doc Holliday.

In 1842 I was the first person to use a chemical with particular properties, to perform an operation on James M. Venable, in Jefferson, Georgia.

No takers?

Here's the giveaway then.

The upstart, tooth pulling, barber boy who claimed to have been 'the first' was the now denounced William Morton.

I am French, I died in 1852.
I invented something that is now used world-wide and it is named after me.

Who am I?

I was born in Saxony in the early 18th.C. I studied at the University of Wittenberg where I gained an M.D.

I took a great interest in the local mining industry.

In my later life I went to the Imperial Academy of Sciences in St Petersburg, where I became professor of chemistry.

So you didn't do anything 'special'? Or receive anything 'special'?

Johann Gottlieb Lehmann (4 August 1719 22 January 1767)

Born in Saxony, Lehmann was the first geologist to realise the relevance of rock strata. He died St. Petersberg, Russia.

Well done C4M.
