Description: 

Long gone by the time of the story, the "Chickasaw Agency post" was the first white settlement in Yoknapatawpha, the origin of Jefferson (70). It was already there "a hundred years" ago - i.e. in the 1830s - when the first white pioneers arrived on the scene and "bought land in the Indian patent" (70).
