Graves

In this drop-down list, you’ll find all relevant gravesites that are located in Rhode Island that relate to Sarah Helen Whitman and Edgar Allan Poe’s story. These graves are all conveniently located in either The North Burial Ground or Swan Point Cemetery. Edgar Allan Poe’s remains lie at the Westminster Burial Ground in Baltimore, Maryland. The only gravesite in this menu that’s not located in Rhode Island would be Sarah Helen’s late husband, from whom she obtained her name (and widow’s bonnet), John Winslow Whitman. He’s located at Center Cemetery in Pembroke, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.

Each grave is outlined with a location, photo, and information regarding the cadaver inside. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns if you’re planning to visit the grave yourself or are having trouble locating it. I’d be happy to help!
