Virginia Clemm   1823-1847
 
I thought I should honor Poe's wife with a page for her, so here it is.  This is a picture of Virginia Clemm, Edgar Allan Poe's first and only wife.  She was his cousin, and only 13 when they married in 1836, but he loved her dearly.  I like to think that his love POEms of Annabel Lee, Helen, The Raven etc. are about her.  She died young of tuberculosis in 1847, at the age of 23. You need Java to see her picture.
