Virginia Clemm1823-1847        Virginia Clemm

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.
