Biography: 

The clerk named Snopes tells Cotton that the man who found his shotgun in the slough where he tried to hide it was "a nigger squirl hunter" (159). There are very few African Americans in the fictions that are set in or around Varner's store, which Faulkner elsewhere calls Frenchman's Bend. All we know about this man is that he found the gun, though we can assume he also took it to Varner's.
