Second son of Bayard Sartoris, III, but his only child with his second wife, Narcissa Benbow, and the only male Sartoris alive at the end of the novel. Though Aunt Jenny had named him "John" prior to his birth, Narcissa gave him her maiden name instead, making him the first Sartoris male in generations not to be named "John" or "Bayard." He was born on the same day his father died crashing an experimental airplane in Dayton, Ohio.
