Biography: 

Like the Sartorises, the McCaslins are planters who were among the first white settlers of Yoknapatawpha; they are at the center of the later novel, Go Down, Moses. "Uncle" is a courtesy title for Buck. The first man to arrive at Granny's funeral, he insists on accompanying Bayard and Ringo on their quest for vengeance. He is profane, testy from his rheumatism, but indefatigable on the outlaws' trail, giving up the quest only after being shot in his bad arm.
