Biography: 

Zach Edmonds - Roth's father - has been dead for twenty years at the time of this story. In Go Down, Moses his place in the long, complicated history of the McCaslin-Edmonds family is fully developed. Here the only suggestion of the prominent place the family occupies in Yoknapatawpha history and society is Lucas' evocation of "Old Zach Edmonds' time thirty or forty years ago," when a gentleman like Judge Gowan came to the plantation to "stay for weeks during the quail season" (222).
