You may want to look at for an interesting story concerning Poe, buried treasure and secret codes. The site, called the Last Haunting of Edgar Allan Poe, sets forth circumstantial evidence that Poe wrote a mysterious 21 page pamphlet known as The Beale Papers. This mystery pamphlet has taken on a life of its own since it was first published in 1885. It has become the holy grail of the crypto community because the codes have never been broken. The story is also very popular in treasure hunting circles because, purportedly, breaking the codes will lead to the discovery of $30 million in gold and silver buried near Lynchburg, Virginia.

The website offers some interesting comparisons between The Beale Papers and Poe's life and work. For example, Poe valued his father's fortune, an inheritance he was denied, at $750,000. The Beale Papers fortune is valued by the anonymous author at "more than three quarters of a million".

Good luck!

He married his cousin, Virginia Allen. When his real father died, he didn't get anything in his will. Most of his stories and poems fit perfectly with his life. On November 2nd, 1848, he tried to commit suicide by taking Laundanum. Thats about all I know right now but maybe other people have more for you!! Good Luck

First off, meow-mix boy, you weren't much of a help to her. And "DORK" isn't an answer. A cool guy for screwing his cousin? ick. and "riter" is spelt W-R-I-T-E-R. Take English classes!
