Biography: 

Damuddy is the grandmother of the Compson children. Whether maternal or paternal is not specified, but Mrs. Compson's reaction to her death and Damuddy's association with Jason make it seem most likely that she is a Bascomb. Until Damuddy got "sick," for example, Jason apparently slept in her bed with her (26). The day of her death, in the summer of 1898, is the earliest scene in Benjy and Quentin's memories.
