Was Virgina Clemn his real blood cousin?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I was just wondering since I am doing a report on Edgar Allen Poe if he married his real blood cousin or was Virgina Clemn just a cousin of Edgars "dad" (the one that he lived with)? So I guees that my question is is Did Edgar marry a blood cousin or just somebody that he call a cousin or what?

YES, Edgar married his bolld cousin. I am also doing a report on him, well actually this is my second, I first did one on him and his life now I am going more in depth with it and presently doing one on him works and how his life influenced them. But, Virgina's grandmother was the sister of Edgar's mother's Grandmother ~ if you get what I am trying to say...well e-mail me and let me know how you do on your report! Thanks ~*Amanda Dee*~
