Biography: 

James Beauchamp is fourth child - and the oldest surviving one - of Tomey’s Turl and Tennie Beauchamp. James left town at 21, without claiming the $1000 inheritance left by Lucius McCaslin. He is the grandfather of the woman who becomes Roth Edmonds’s mistress in "Delta Autumn," and in that story Faulkner identifies him as among the black descendants of Lucius Quintus Carothers McCaslin. There is no hint of that connection in this story, however.
