Biography: 

Colonel Sartoris, who belongs to the same generation as Miss Emily’s father, remitted her taxes dating from the death of her father. The Colonel made up a story that claimed Mr. Grierson had loaned money to the town and forgiving the taxes was the way the town paid back Emily. Even though this is not evident in the story, the title "Colonel" is entirely honorific; he is the son of Colonel John Sartoris, but he himself never fought in any wars.
