Biography: 

Ab Snopes is the founding father of the Snopes family as this prolific clan appears in many of Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha fictions. In The Unvanquished stories he is allied with Rosa Millard in the scheme to defraud the Yankee army, but becomes Bayard and Ringo's enemy in the story "The Unvanquished" after indirectly causing her death at Grumby's hands. In "Vendee" he has joined Grumby's gang, though they deliver him to Bayard, Ringo and Buck McCaslin in an attempt to head off their pursuit. The gang's obvious contempt for him is shared by the narrative.
