Biography: 

The mother of Eck Snopes is mentioned only in connection with her son's character. Because he doesn't see Eck and his sons as "Snopeses," Montgomery Ward "has always believed that Eck's mother" had conceived him adulterously (97). In The Town, published a couple years before The Mansion, Gavin Stevens suggests the same thing, for the same reason: Eck's decency seems incompatible with Snopes' DNA. But neither narrative provides any other basis for this idea.
