Biography: 

Various members of the Snopes family appear in many of the Yoknapatawpha fictions. In addition to the two, Clarence and Virgil, who appear directly in Sanctuary, the narrative also includes Horace's reference to the family as a group: their origin "somewhere near Frenchman's Bend," the fact that many of them "still live there," and their role as epitomes of the "illiterate race which populated that section of the county" (205).
