Biography: 

Edmonds rents a cabin to Rider and Mannie after their marriage, though unlike most of the blacks who live on the McCaslin property, Rider does not work for Edmonds as a tenant farmer.  The mention of Edmonds here is notable for giving Faulkner a way to tie Rider and "Pantaloon" to the McCaslin family narrative that fills Go Down, Moses, where "Pantaloon in Black" later appears as a chapter.
