Virginia Clemm was Edgar Allan Poe's wife, not mistress. They were married May 26, 1836.

i've been doing some research for a school project and when Poe was 16 he secretly got engaged to a girl named "Sarah Elmira Royster," then when he was about 40 (the year he died) he engaged the same girl again only her name was "Sarah Elmira (Royster)Shelton" i'm not sure if that's his mistress or not, and i have no idea where she was buried
