Biography: 

This character's true identity is unusually ambiguous. Both "Miss Smith" and her brothers, the Thorpes, state that she was married when she arrived in Frenchman's Bend, eight months pregnant. And when Isham Quick tells those brothers about her marriage to Fentry, they add that they "done already attended to" this husband (106). But the story does not make it clear what they did to or for him, or for that matter if the man who was the father of her child really was also her husband, and it says nothing about why, if that was so, she ran away to Yoknapatawpha.
