Biography: 

Loosh is Joby's son and Philadelphy's husband. Philadelphy, however, is not mentioned in this story, and Loosh (who as readers of "Retreat" are aware, took her away from Sartoris earlier in the quest for freedom from slavery) appears only when Bayard compares the way the poor people of Yoknapatawpha look at Granny to the way he remembers his family's hounds looking when Loosh went in their kennels to feed them (85).

Note: 
CUT: Loosh himself is absent during the story, which readers of earlier stories in the series, especially "Retreat," know was because he chose to self-emancipate himself by following the Union troops who came through Yoknapatawpha.
