Biography: 

"Aunt Tennie," as her second name suggests, is the mother of "Tennie's Jim" (229, 22). She became a Beauchamp by marrying Tomey's Turl, an illegitimate grandson of Carothers McCaslin. In this novel she is linked most explicitly to the grandson of Tennie's Jim, Bobo, whom she raised, but she is also the mother of Lucas Beauchamp and likely related somehow to Ned.
