HISTORICALLY SPEAKING, POE WAS ONLY A YOUNG BOY BORN IN BOSTON, (BORN TO TWO ACTORS) WHEN HE BECAME AN ORPHAN WHEN HIS MOTHER DIED OF TUBERCULOSIS. POE'S FAMILY WHICH INCLUDED AN OLDER BROTHER AND A YOUNGER SISTER WERE LIVING IN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA WHEN THE DEMISE OCCURRED AND HIS FATHER ABANDONED THE FAMILY.

THE YOUNG POE NAMED EDGAR POE WAS TAKEN IN BY JOHN AND FRANCES ALLAN ALSO OF RICHMOND. THE ALLAN'S NEVER FORMALLY ADOPTED HIM AND IN LATER YEARS, HIS ADOPTED FATHER WOULD SHOW SEVERE ANIMOSITY TO THE BOY THAT ALLAN PERCEIVED AS "UNGRATEFUL" DESPITE HIS ADOPTED FATHER'S IMMENSE WEALTH, POE WAS GRANTED NO INHERITANCE WHEN THE PATRIARCH FINALLY DIED.
