Neilson Poe

Neilson Poe Visual Arts American History Biographies Social Studies

Neilson Poe - Edgar's cousin - was worried that Poe might want to marry Virginia Clemm. 

To keep that from happening, Poe asked Maria Clemm to send Virginia to Neilson's home.  Among other things, he promised that he would pay for Virginia's education.

There was another reason why Neilson was so concerned about Virginia's well-being.  He was married to Virginia's half-sister, Josephine Emily Clemm.
