On October 3, 1849, Poe was found delirious and in distress on the streets of Baltimore. He died 4 days later on October 7. Adding to the mystery of Poe's death, a visitor affectionately known as the "Poe Toaster" paid homage to Poe's grave annually beginning in 1949 with 3 red roses and a bottle of cognac. As the tradition carried on for more than 60 years, it is likely that the Poe Toaster was actually several individuals.
See the movie HASHI; true story (with Richard Gere). In Scotland I saw a famous dog statue next to a pub where the owner and his dog are buried. The dog never left the grave site for years after the owner died so they put up a monument with the story.
