Description: 

Mottstown is the seat of the county just south of Yoknapatawpha, so we use it as the place "in the next county" where Flem and Eula marry (6). It is explicitly referred to in the novel as "Mottstown junction" when Gavin Stevens changes trains there to "catch the express from Memphis to New York" (107). (In Faulkner's other Yoknapatawpha fictions, this change would occur north of Yoknapatawpha, in the town he calls "Memphis Junction.")
