Biography: 

Eula returns from Texas with "as well-growed a three-months-old baby" as the narrator has ever seen (167). It's clear from the story that the child was conceived before Eula married Flem, and that its father is not Flem, but one of the unnamed men who had been courting Eula. When this child next appears in Faulkner's fiction, as an increasingly important character in the Snopes trilogy, it is identified as a daughter named Linda.
