Description: 

Readers of Flags in the Dust know that "the graveyard" (727) where Simon is buried is "the negro ground" in the segregated cemetery on the northern edge of Jefferson. There are quite a few burial places in Yoknapatawpha, but this is the county's main one. The graves and memorials of the various dead members of the Sartoris family can also be found here, in the ground set aside for whites.
