Biography: 

As he tells the story in 1961, Lucius Priest notes that the "Little Hub" Hampton "who is sheriff now" is the grandson of the Hampton who is sheriff in 1905 (14). Faulkner may have lost track of his Hamptons, however; the Sheriff Hope Hampton who appears in the later Yoknapatawpha fictions is nicknamed "Hub"; in The Mansion "Little Hub" is his son, and so the great-grandson of the man who was sheriff in 1905.
