Biography: 

"Still alive at ninety" (91), Isaac "Uncle Ike" McCaslin is the central character in Go Down, Moses. He is also Lucas Beauchamp's cousin, but this novel doesn't mention him in that context. Instead, Chick thinks of him along with the other great men his grandfather told him about - the hunters who pursued "deer and bear and wild turkey . . . within twelve miles of Jefferson" (90) - just as he is about to set out on his own adventure beyond the Nine-Mile Branch.
