Later, Poe married Virginia Clemm, who died in 1847. About a year after that Poe went back to the now widow Sarah Elmira Royster Shelton. Her husband had died in 1844. Poe asked her to marry him. At first she did not wish to but then consented. Unfortunately, Poe died before they could be wed. Sarah Elmira Royster Shelton died in 1888.
