Biography: 

According to Gavin's ideas, the immigrants who settled in the flatter parts of Yoknapatawpha, "the people named Littlejohn and Greenleaf and Armstead and Millingham and Bookwright," are different from ones with names like Gowrie, whose ancestors came from "the Scottish highlands" (146, 145). Presumably more English, that first group moved to "the broad rich easy land where a man can raise something he can sell openly in daylight" (146); the implied contrast is with moonshine. (There is a Confederate General named Armstead mentioned in the novel, but he's from North Carolina. Members of the Armstid family appear in 9 other Yoknapatawpha fictions, and presumably that is the name Faulkner meant to use on this list.)
