I need names and dates of the places Poe lived during his lifetime - THANX

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

I'm doing this report on Poe and I have to have all the names and dates of all the places Poe lived during hi lifetime. I thought this would be easy ... you know, get on the internet, surf some sites, and BAM there it would be, but i've found nothing of the sort! this is what I have so far:

Boston Richmond, Virginia England New York City Charlottesville, Virginia Baltimore Philadelphia Fordham, New York

The only problem is i don't have dates or even know if he lived in these places at all! If you could double check my work and see if you know of any dates that would great! thanks you soooo much!

Several homes have been preserved as historical although Poe not only moved around but often stayed at friends' homes. Starting with www.eapoe.org which lists some historical residences especially the Poe Museum in Baltimore don't forget his childhood, his schooling and travels in Britain, ignoring his supposed trips to France and Russia(his brother?) decide on keeping to his several fixed residences in the great population and cultural centers of America. Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Richmond. Try Precisely Poe at poedecoder.com for images of museum homes.

From the EA Poe society web page Last Update: March 22, 1998 Navigation: Main Menu Poe Info. Menu Where Poe Lived, Worked and Visited (This page is under construction.) It is virtually impossible to compile a complete list of places where Poe lived, worked and visited. From his birth in 1809 until the death of his mother in December of 1811, Poe lived with his parents, who were actors. Traveling up and down the east coast, David and Eliza Poe were prevented by the demands of their profession from staying anywhere long enough to put down roots.
