Description: 

Though we include it on our main map, Mottstown is in fact the seat of the county just south of Yoknapatawpha. (In this novel we learn for the first time that the name of that county is Mott, and that the counties to the west and east of Yoknapatawpha are named, respectively, Okatoba and Crossman, 184.) Mottstown - or as Faulkner sometimes spells it, Mottson - appears in many of the Yoknapatawpha fictions. In Intruder in the Dust it is referred to as the site of an away football game that Chick's Jefferson team played (121), and a possible place for Lucas to be moved to for safe keeping (63).
