What happened to his brother and sister

After Poe went to live with the Allan's, where did his brother and sister go? and what were the names of the people who took care of them? Were they adopted or were they also 'just taken in'?

His brother died at 24, and his sister went to live with the Mackenzie family, and died at age 63.

They were all adopted by different families. His sister was an invalid and lived a long life. His brother had a huge psychological problem and died from it (I can't remember what).
