Threet Family Website (John Poe 1785-1859 married Sarah Threet in Anson Co. NC around 1805. Sarah was of the Threet family in Anson and in Chesterfield Co. South Carolina. Presumably these Threet descend from the Virginia Thweat group)

 

Threet Family Notes, Census Records, etc.

 

Based on this Ancestry data and my own investigations, and relying much on these record from Anson County, NC associating John Poe with an Evan Threet, my best analysis is that Sarah Threet  is a daughter of this Evan Threet, who was a son of Frederick Threet – see ancestry charts above.

NOTE: These are the parents of Edgar Allan Poe. This Poe site does not seem to be aware of this marriage bond in Richmond.

 

http://www.eapoe.org/geninfo/poegnlgy.htm#david1742

 

David Poe, Jr. (born: July 18, 1784 in Baltimore, Maryland - died: possibly Dec. 1811, perhaps in Norfolk, Virginia
and Elizabeth Arnold Hopkins Poe (born: possibly in 1787 - died: Dec. 8, 1811. Married: sometime in early April, 1806.)

Elizabeth had been married to Charles Hopkins from the summer of 1802 until his death on October 26, 1805. This prior marriage produced no children. There seems no justification to the rumor that Elizabeth Arnold was a granddaughter of the infamous Benedict Arnold. The name of her father was probably Henry or William Henry Arnold. Her mother was Elizabeth Smith Arnold, also an actress.
