Description: 

There are quite a few burial places in Yoknapatawpha, but this one, reached by driving up "a narrow lane" at "the edge of town" (396), seems to be the main one in Yoknapatawpha. It is segregated. In the "whitefolks' section" lie the Sartorises (397). The graves of Colonel John, Old Bayard, Young Bayard and his twin brother John are specifically mentioned. Simon Struthers' grave is "the negro ground" (397).
