Celebrity's Relative
    (August 22, 1822-January 30, 1847)
    Married to Edgar Allan Poe from 1836-1847
    Died of tuberculosis
    Her nickname was ‘Sissy.'
    She married Edgar Allan Poe, her first cousin, when she was 13.
    She and Poe told the minister who married them that she was 21.
    She continued to play children's games such as jump rope after her marriage.
    Her death drove Poe into a depression from which he never recovered.
    She inspired Poe to write some of his greatest poems such as ‘Annabel Lee' and ‘Ulalume.'
    She was a talented singer.
    Her marriage may not have been consummated until she was 16.
    She and Poe were so poor that when she was dying she slept with their cat on her chest for warmth.
    She was one of the inspirations behind ‘Lolita' by Vladimir Nabokov (who initially planned to call his book ‘Ginny').
