Eliza had a tumultuous personal life, with her marriage to David Poe Jr. (a lawyer and actor) being strained due to his alcoholism and early death from tuberculosis. After his death, Eliza struggled financially and was forced to place her children in the care of various foster families. Her son, Edgar Allan Poe, went on to become one of the most famous writers of his time, but tragically, he was also plagued by financial difficulties and personal demons.
