Adam Poe
Doing some research on my Mom's side of the fami,y which is Aldridge, Higgins and Poe. As I am sure you know many people claim to be related to Edgar Allen. As my Mom told me stories avout Adam Poe, before the internet existed, being an indian fighter, and was later able to confirm that story, I gotta say it is very likely true we are related to a family with the last name Poe.

Here's the question, which I am sure you saw coming, are Adam Poe and Edgar Allen related? Family lore says we rejectd him, but also family is full of con artists.

Elizabeth Poe
I saw your bio you placed on Elizabeth's findagrave memorial. Very helpful to me. I am a direct descendant of Rebecca Cochran Hook. Rebecca was dau of William Cochran, of Cochran's bottoms where he was killed. I am trying to unravel a mystery, and wonder if you would already know where the name Smith comes in? I have notes on Elizabeth Smith Cadman marrying a William Cochran, and having Rebecca, and then William dies, then she marries Adam. But you have maiden name Matthews. I'm trying to sort this out. I figured out where I got smith, but not sure if it's accurate. I got Smith off of marriage record oct 12, 1777 to Adam Poe. for some reason, it says Elizabeth Smith. They def were married on oct 12, but, I thought she would've been either Cochran or whatever her maiden name was. ? Do you know where they got smith from? Have you seen this record I"m speaking of? Is it in error?

Andrew Poe
Melissa.. Do you have any information on Andrew Poe, born about 1811, and married Mary Ann Sweeney ? Mary Ann Poe later married David Atwood in Madison, WI in 1848. Stark Co History has him as the son of Andrew and Nancy (Hoy) Poe... Brad

Andrew A Poe
Hi Melissa. Transfer complete. My mother was a Poe. But I didn't know to whom Andrew was connected. What part of Ohio was he from?

I am unrelated to the Sanders family you mentioned. I have just photographed their grave marker for others to see. Sorry I can't be of more help.
