Biography: 

The narrative calls this man "the marshal," and Judge Gowan addresses him as "Henry" (222). Elsewhere in the Yoknapatawpha fictions the marshals are distinguished from the sheriffs and their deputies as the officers specifically assigned to the town rather than the county, but in this story both this marshal and the unnamed deputy marshal seem similar to bailiffs who represent the law inside the courthouse.
