Who is buried in Poes grave?

Presuming this is a serious question, the answer can be confirmed by visiting the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore web site at http://www.eapoe.org. Originally, Edgar Poe was buried in the Presbyterian Church cemetery in the family burial lot of his grandfather, General David Poe. In November of 1875, his remains were moved to the southeastern corner of the cemetery and a monument was dedicated to him with the names of those buried with him. The remains of his wife, Virginia Eliza Clemm Poe, was moved from New York and interned next to Poe and those of her mother Maria Poe Clemm. Today, the cemetery is known as the Westminster Burial Grounds.
