Biography: 

In his role as narrator, Lucius refers briefly to a "present Cousin Carothers," who still owns the property first acquired by Lucius Quintus Carothers McCaslin (61). This is probably Roth Edmonds, who would be about 60 years old in the 'present' of the novel. The "cattle guard" he has installed at the gate indicates that the property is still being farmed in 1961 (61), making the McCaslin-Edmonds family, and the estate that sustains their status, the one part of Yoknapatawpha's original aristocracy that shows no signs of decaying over time.
