Biography: 

This icon represents "the chillen" Elnora refers to when, describing Jennie Du Pre's 1869 arrival at the Sartoris plantation for her own two children, she says that "Marse John and the chillen" were waiting for her on the veranda (733). In Flags in the Dust (1929), John Sartoris has two daughters in addition to his son Bayard. Faulkner never names these daughters, who remain elusive parts of the Sartoris family. Based on Flags, in 1869 they would have been older than the word "children" suggests, but it's hard to guess who else Elnora could mean.
