Biography: 

Colonel John Sartoris is the patriarch of the Sartoris family, and one of the major figures in the Yoknapatawpha fiction. He had two daughters (unnamed in Faulkner's works) and a son, Bayard. His wife apparently died during Bayard's childbirth (1849), so Sartoris was a widower by the time of the Civil War. He left his mother-in-law, Rosa Millard, in charge of his plantation during the war. Sartoris is only mentioned "The Unvanquished."
