Theodore E. Poe,  Jr.


(excerpt from email of June 19, 2003)

 

...  my family tree is yet another Poe branch to consider.  Circa 1820, two teenaged Poe brothers  (John and Elisha) arrived in Baltimore County, MD from points unknown. Of Elisha, I know nothing.  However, I've uncovered a good bit of John's descendents. 

 

John (b.ca. 1805) -> John(b.1831) -> Eli(b.1860) -> Emory(b.1889) ->

Theodore (b.1915) -> myself.

 

There is a reference in a cousin's memoirs of John and Elisha arriving by ship, but there is no reference to their port of departure.  This is

presently my brick wall.
