Biography: 

Old Carothers McCaslin has three legitimate white children, one of whom is a daughter. This elusive figure is never specifically named in a published text; the first time she appears in the story she is referred to as Cass' "grandmother" (who "raised him following his mother's death") and "Uncle Buck and Uncle Buddy's sister" (9). It is clear that she marries someone named Edmonds, and is thus "the woman" through whom Cass inherits both McCaslin blood, and, since Ike renounces his inheritance, the McCaslin property (243).
