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.  Edmonds is notable here for tying Rider and “Pantaloon” to the McCaslin family narrative that fills Go Down, Moses, where “Pantaloon” later appears and in which readers learn much more about Edmonds’s life.
