Biography: 

The "French sugar planter" (199) who becomes Sutpen's "first father-in-law" (268) after Sutpen saves him and his plantation from a slave rebellion is not described in any detail. Since his daughter is described as "Haiti-born" (268), it seems likely that he himself is originally from France. He is apparently a widow, telling Sutpen that his daughter's "mother had been a Spanish woman" (283).
