Abstract
Stephen Elliott (1771–1830) published “A Sketch of the Botany of South-Carolina and Georgia” in thirteen fascicles, which were later bound in two volumes. Citations of Flora Boreali-Americana by André Michaux appear very frequently, and Elliott's remarks under numerous plants attest to his frequent reference to Michaux's Flora. At least one specimen in Elliott's herbarium bears Michaux's name. Michaux's holding garden near Charleston, South Carolina was well known to Elliott who visited it at least once. A map shows the site of “Old” Sister's Ferry used by Michaux and Elliott.
