Poe Period

Poe Period
Did you know that Edgar Allan Poe would have been 200 years old on Monday, January 19th? He was born on January 19, 1809. I’ve always wanted to visit his grave and today was the day…on a cold, VERY windy day. Here is some history about Poe’s life and death:

At Poe’s funeral in October 1849, he was laid to rest in lot 27, the family lot originally purchased by his grandfather, David Poe, Sr. Already buried there were his grandfather and grandmother, as well as his older brother, William Henry Leonard Poe. Tradition states that he was buried between his grandfather and the Reverend Patrick Allison (1740-1802). Although there is no evidence that there were originally any stones to mark the Poe family lot, it is bounded on one side by the marble slab of Rev. Allison, and a vault owned by William Buchanan (732-1804), but engraved with the name of Joseph Pearson.
On May 30, 1913, Orin C. Painter funded the preparation of a stone to mark the original place of Poe’s burial in 1849, behind the church. For unknown reasons, the stone was misplaced near the rear wall of the cemetery, entirely outside of the Poe family lot. In 1921, Miss May Garrettson Evans, later the president of the Poe Society of Baltimore, arranged for the stone to be moved to its current location. The stone measures 49 inches high, including the base. The main section is 10 inches wide and 28 inches across. The base (not shown in this photograph) is 18 inches wide and 36 inches across. Above the carved raven is the best-known line from Poe’s best-known poem: “Quoth the Raven, Nevermore.” The rest of the inscription reads: “Original Burial Place of Edgar Allan Poe from October 9, 1849 until November 17, 1875. Mrs. Maria Clemm, his mother-in-law, lies upon his right and Virginia Poe, his wife, upon his left under the monument erected to him in this cemetery.”
Nearby is a similar stone, without the rounded top. It reads: “Burial place of David Poe, Sr., patriot and grandfather of Edgar Allan Poe. Born in Londonderry, Ireland in 1743. Died in Baltimore, Oct. 17, 1816.” David Poe’s grave is surrounded by four small corner stones, each marked with the letter “P.”
•1849 (Oct. 3) – Poe is found by Joseph W. Walker and taken into Cornelius Ryan’s “4th Ward Polls,” a tavern at Gunner’s Hall, 44 East Lombard Street, awaiting the arrival of his friend Dr. Joseph Evans Snodgrass. Finding Poe nearly unconscious in the tavern, Snodgrass and Poe’s uncle, Henry Herring, presume that he is drunk and send him in a carriage to Washington College Hospital (now Church Hospital), where his care is supervised by Dr. John J. Moran. (Gunners Hall stood on the north side of Lombard, between High and Exeter, a few doors east of High. This area is considerably changed since Poe’s day and the building no longer exists.)
•1849 (Oct. 4) – Poe’s Baltimore cousin, Neilson Poe, calls at the hospital to see Poe, but is told that the patient is too excitable for visitors.
•1849 (Oct. 5) – Neilson Poe hears that Edgar is “much better” and sends him a change of linen.
•1849 (Oct. 7) – At about 5:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, Poe dies. According to John J. Moran, Poe’s body is moved to the Rotunda of Washington College Hospital, where it is “visited by some of the first individuals of the city, many of them anxious to have a lock of his hair” (Moran to Maria Clemm, Nov. 15, 1849, reprinted in Quinn and Hart, Letters and Documents, pp. 31-34). According to Ella Warden, however, the viewing of Poe’s remains occurred in the home of her mother, Mary Estelle Warden, Poe’s cousin.
•1849 (Oct. 8 or 9) – At about 4:30 p.m., Poe is buried in his grandfather’s lot in the Westminster Burying Ground. (Oct. 8 is generally the preferred date.) A mahogany coffin is provided by Poe’s Uncle, Henry Herring, a lumber dealer. (Dr. Moran’s claims that he himself bought Poe’s coffin are without foundation. Another story that Poe’s coffin was oak is also unsubstantiated.) The hack and hearse are arranged and paid for by Edgar’s cousin, Neilson Poe. The ceremony is officiated by Poe’s relative, the Reverend William T. D. Clemm. The weather is said to have been cold and gray, with a touch of rain. The few who accompany Poe’s body to its place of rest include Henry Herring, Neilson Poe, Dr. J. E. Snodgrass and Z. Collins Lee. (Lee had been a classmate of Edgar’s at the University of Virginia and remained a life-long friend.)
•1871 (Feb. 16) – Maria Clemm, Poe’s aunt and doting mother-in-law, dies at the Episcopal Church Home in Baltimore. She had lived in this charitable institution since the spring of 1863. Ironically, prior to 1850 the Church Home was the Washington College Hospital, so that Maria Clemm died in the same building as Poe had 22 years before.
•1875 (Nov. 17) – Poe’s Memorial Grave, containing the exhumed remains of Edgar and of Maria Clemm, is dedicated in elaborate ceremonies. Among those in attendance are Neilson Poe (Edgar’s cousin) and the poet Walt Whitman. The widespread attention

Tears! seriously.

Tears! seriously.
my poor grandmothers casket. :*(
sometime in the last 10 years my grandmother wrote this poem that my mother found while preparing for her funeral,

To My Kids

Its been a thousand years and yet it seems like only yesterday
That I held them over my heart and cared for their every need.

And as they grew their needs changed from physical to spiritual.
And as they grew my heart reached out for them.
There was distance between us.
I held you even closer.
We did not touch anymore.
I had given you all I could.

I felt your pain of growing and I knew your heartache.
Each with an empty spot,I could not fill that part.
This was close to me as it is with every mother.
This part they must fill.

So I filled the rest of their hearts as best I could.
And I knew without a doubt that I would be a part of each child’s heart
even after death and even into the future.

My grandchildren
I pray dear God do help me to put something substantial into each child’s heart
And I pray that it will be a guide
as each one fills their heart with life

Love Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma GG.

and for the funeral my own mother, her daughter added this

To my oldest brother Bill she gave her great sense of adventure
To my 2nd brother Bob her strong will and determination
To me, her only daughter, she taught the fine art of mothering
And to Marty her youngest she gave the warmth of caring and compassion.

To her grandchildren Aaron, Billy, Brandon, Charles, Heather, Jenn, Lane and Stephen
To her great grandchildren Amber, Cheyenne, Brennah, Paisley, and Nicolas
Mom gave an appreciation for the pricelessness of a grandmother’s unconditional love.

And to all she knew she always gave a freindly smile, an encouraging word,
and a small bit of advice.

We will all miss her….but our hearts are full.
