Biography: 

When Stonewall Jackson Fentry leaves his father's farm to try "to earn a little extra money" working at a sawmill in Frenchman's Bend, according to Pruitt, he made some kind of arrangement with this unnamed black man to help on the farm in his place. Pruitt tells Gavin Stevens he often heard the father "cussing the nigger for not moving fast enough" in the field, but when two years later the son brings the baby home, the Fentrys continue to employ him for a season (97).
