Biography: 

The youngest sister of Colonel John and "Carolina" Bayard Sartoris, Jenny married a man named Du Pre, who was killed in the Civil War. In 1869 she made her own way from Carolina to Mississippi to live with her brother's family, bringing with her "a straw-filled hamper" containing pieces of colored glass from the family's ancestral mansion (10) and tales of Sartoris daring. Indomitable and strong-willed, she comes to run the Sartoris household and outlives all of the Sartoris men except for Benbow Sartoris, her great-great-grandnephew.
