Biography: 

Though this text doesn't say so, readers of the Snopes trilogy know that the "well-grown baby" girl that Mrs. Snopes brings back to Yoknapatawpha from Texas is named Linda. Her father is identified in The Hamlet as Hoake McCarron. Linda herself plays a major role in the later parts of the trilogy.

Note: 
Soon after Flem Snopes and Eula Varner wed, they move to Texas. In "Centaur in Brass," Eula returns to Mississippi, although to Jefferson instead of Frenchman's Bend with "a well-grown baby" (149-150). The clear implication is, of course, that Flem is not the child's biological father. We later learn in the Snopes trilogy that Linda's biological father is Hoake McCarron.
