Poes' childhood.

Poe was adopted at a very young age. I have a friend that was adopted at a young age and he was adopted into a great family.

Poe at the age of 18.

When Poe was 18 he went to Boston and joined the U.S. Army in 1827. My grandfather was in the Marines when he was young.
This is a picture that was painted 3 weeks before Poe died. I have a picture of my grandfather but I'm not sure how long it was taken before he passed away.
