Biography: 

The "Mr Hampton" who is the county sheriff in 1905 is the grandfather of Hope Hampton who is county sheriff while Lucius Priest is telling the story in 1961. He makes sure the "Negro girl" whom Boon shoots by mistake gets to the doctor's, but then tells Maury Priest that "a new dress," "a bag of candy" and "ten dollars" for her father is enough to "settle" her claim against Boon (15).
