Donna: My wife and I went to McKissick Museum at USC yesterday to see the display about the Pomaria Nursery. Here was an on-line advertisement...this William & brother Adam developed this world renowned nursery in first half of 1800s...I'd never heard of it... [worthy of William's bio?]
""Beginning in June, McKissick Museum will host an exhibit on the history of Pomaria Nursery, a renowned nursery that thrived from the 1840s to the 1870s in central South Carolina. Pomaria was the first major nursery to develop in the lower and middle South and became the center of a bustling town that, today, bears its name. Begun by William Summer in the late 1830s, it grew into one of the most important American nurseries of the antebellum period, offering wide varieties of fruit trees and ornamentals to gardeners throughout the South. At its peak, the nursery offered over 1000 varieties of apples, pears, peaches, plums, figs, apricots and grapes developed and chosen specifically for the southern climate, as well as an equal number of ornamentals, including 400 varieties of repeat-blooming roses for the South. William Summer also published catalogs containing well selected and thoroughly tested varieties of plants, and assisted his brother, Adam, in publishing several agricultural journals throughout the 1850s and until 1862.
Highlighting the life of William and Adam Summer and other individuals who contributed to the nursery's success, the exhibition will feature their innovative technologies, from the Summers' pioneering scientific approach to horticulture, to their new techniques for fruit tree and flower breeding, to the nursery's introduction of new ornamentals to the American continent. The show will hopefully bring new appreciation for the advancements and beauty that this horticultural endeavor brought to plant cultivation in America.""

Thanks so much for the additions on Catharine Neely. The only other thing on her memorial would be to change the inscription on the stone to "Ireland" unless it really was abbreviated. Thanks!
