Biography: 

Major de Spain served in the Confederate War as a Major. He and his wife Lula had two sons, Major Cassius II and Manfred. He appears in this story as the Sheriff of Yoknapatawpha County. In Go Down, Moses readers learn that he - or his son; while characters called "Major de Spain" appear in a number of Yoknapatawpha fictions, the de Spain genealogy is impossible to pin down - bought and restored the fishing cabin after Wash was executed. He also came to be the proprietor of the old Sutpen plantation.
