Biography: 

Twice referred to as "the oldest Negro" on the hunting expedition (273, 275), Isham's main duty is to cook for the white hunters, but in addition he seems to take particular care of Ike McCaslin, both physically by preparing his bed and emotionally by "warning" him about the young woman who visits the camp (277).
