1519 Unnamed Allied Aviators

These are the pilots whom Young Bayard evokes in Flags in the Dust when he talks to Rafe MacCallum "about the war"; the narrator describes them as "young men like fallen angels, and of a meteoric violence like that of fallen angels" (123).

2006 Unnamed Ambulance Driver 1

In "All the Dead Pilots" this "young man in spectacles" who "looked like a student" is "dead drunk" when Sartoris takes his ambulance to Amiens (522).

2385 Unnamed Ambulance Driver 2

In Absalom!, this is the "driver" of the "ambulance" that Rosa takes out to the Sutpen place at the end of 1909, to bring Henry into town "where the doctors could save him" (299).

2982 Unnamed American Haberdashers

According to "Knight's Gambit," the elements of the uniform worn by the pilots of the Royal Air Force - "the blue of Britain and the hooked wings of a diving falcon and the modest braid of rank: but above all the blue, the color the shade which the handful of Anglo Saxon young men had established and decreed as [a] visual synonym of glory" - became so celebrated that "an association of American haberdashers or gents' outfitters had adopted it as a trade slogan" (206).

1520 Unnamed American Infantryman 1

The "fellow recruit" in Flags in the Dust who calls Buddy MacCallum "Virge" during their training at a camp in Arkansas; in response Buddy fights him "without anger" for "seven minutes" (355).

1521 Unnamed American Infantryman 2

The fellow soldier in Flags in the Dust who calls Buddy MacCallum "Virge" at the New Jersey port from which they are shipping out for the War. As he had done once before, in Arkansas, Buddy responds by fighting him "steadily and thoroughly and without anger" (355).

3060 Unnamed American Legion Commander

In Light in August, when Grimm asks the "commander of the local Post" about organizing a group to preserve the peace in Jefferson after Christmas is arrested, this man says no. "I couldn't use the Post like that. After all, we are not soldiers now" (452).

3061 Unnamed American Legion Member 1

In Light in August Percy Grimm recruits members of the local American Legion from "the stores and offices where the legion members worked" and organizes them into a "platoon" to preserve the peace after Christmas is jailed in Jefferson (453). This man objects to Grimm's rhetoric and argues that this "is Jefferson's trouble, not Washington's" (454).

3062 Unnamed American Legion Member 2

In Light in August Percy Grimm recruits members of the local American Legion from "the stores and offices where the legion members worked" and organizes them into a "platoon" to preserve the peace after Christmas is jailed in Jefferson (453). This man asks what the sheriff will say about them carrying pistols.

3063 Unnamed American Legion Member 3

In Light in August Percy Grimm recruits members of the local American Legion from "the stores and offices where the legion members worked" and organizes them into a "platoon" to preserve the peace after Christmas is jailed in Jefferson (453). To pass the time, this man starts a poker game on Saturday night that lasts through Sunday night.

3064 Unnamed American Legion Member 4

In Light in August Percy Grimm recruits members of the local American Legion from "the stores and offices where the legion members worked" and organizes them into a "platoon" to preserve the peace after Christmas is jailed in Jefferson (453). Because he holds "the equivalent of a commissioned rank," this young man is appointed by Grimm as the "second in command" of the platoon he forms (456). He is the one who, on Grimm's orders, turns on the "fire alarm" after Christmas escapes (458).

3065 Unnamed American Legion Members

The American Legion was organized in 1919 for veterans of the First World War. In Light in August it is to the local members of this organization, now civilians working in "stores and offices" in Jefferson (453), that Grimm turns for volunteers to preserve peace and order after Christmas is arrested. Despite the initial resistance of the American Legion Commander, some American Legion members, and Sheriff Kennedy, he gets enough volunteers to create "a fair platoon" (453).

1945 Unnamed American Military Policeman

As an American military policeman (A.M.P.), this unnamed character in "Ad Astra" competes with Monaghan for control over the German prisoner. Mystified by the company of headstrong and independent aviators in which he finds himself, he insultingly asserts his authority over the French officer at the Cloche-Clos in Amiens, thus helping to bring on the riot. The French officer calls him a "devil-dog" - a World War I era slang term for a U.S. Marine (422).

2983 Unnamed American Serviceman

Over 3000 U.S. servicemen were killed or wounded during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, but this entry reflects the unusual way that Charles Mallison recalls December 7th, 1941, in "Knight's Gambit" - "a Jap dropped a bomb on another American" (254).

1918 Unnamed American Soldier 1

This man appears in Sanctuary in the story Ruby tells at two different times, to Temple and and then later to Horace, about how when Lee was stationed in the Philippines he "killed another soldier" in a brawl over a local woman (59).

2856 Unnamed American Soldier 2

In "Appendix Compson," this soldier is described as merely "a shape (a man in khaki)," as seen through Melissa Meek's tear-filled eyes (337). But he picks her up and installs her in a seat when she is overwhelmed by the crowds at the Memphis bus station. Although he is presumably part of the crowd of "soldiers and sailors enroute either to leave or to death" in the Second World War (337), Faulkner reasserts the humanity of those that make up the crowd through this soldier's stateside actions.

1798 Unnamed American Soldiers 1

These soldiers in Sanctuary - presumably cavalrymen like Lee Goodwin - are returning to San Francisco from their deployment in the Philippines when Ruby asks them about what has happened to Lee. When she lets one of them pick her up, he paws her drunkenly while telling her about Lee killing another soldier in a fight over "that nigger woman" (277). American forces were first sent to the Philippines in 1898 to fight the Spanish, but soon were fighting against Philippine nationalists. The Philippines were an American territory from 1898 to 1946.

1799 Unnamed American Soldiers 2

In Sanctuary Ruby worked in New York during the First World War; according to her, the city was "full of soldiers with money to spend" (278). The "New York Port of Embarkation" - the first officially designated embarkation point for soldiers and supplies sent to Europe - included Hoboken and Brooklyn.

2823 Unnamed American Soldiers and Sailors

In "Shall Not Perish," after Pete died, Res Grier would bring home the Memphis newspaper each time he returned from Jefferson. The Grier family would see the "pictures and names of soldiers and sailors from other counties and towns in Mississippi and Arkansas and Tennessee" who died in spring and summer of 1942 (102). While African American soldiers fought and died during World War II, it is unlikely that during this time of segregation in the South the Memphis paper would have published their pictures.

1522 Unnamed American Students at Oxford

In its brief account of Horace's term as a Rhodes Scholar in England, Flags in the Dust mentions the "fellow-countrymen" with whom he occasionally travels on the "Continent" (177).

2986 Unnamed American Tourists and Expatriates

What Gavin Stevens in "Knight's Gambit" somewhat facetiously calls the "second" "American Expeditionary Force in France" that "began to land in Europe in 1919" are the many Americans who toured or moved to Europe in the years after the First World War (256). The "first" A.E.F., of course, were the one million soldiers in the U.S. Army who landed in France to join the British and French forces fighting Germany; they had returned home by 1919.

2987 Unnamed American World War I Soldiers

The "first American Expeditionary Force" that Gavin Stevens refers to in "Knight's Gambit" are the more than one million U.S. troops who landed in France in 1917 and 1918 to join England and France in the fight against the Germany (256).

2824 Unnamed Americans

At the conclusion of "Shall Not Perish," the narrator identifies the group he calls "America": "the men and women who did the deeds . . . who lasted and endured. . . . I knew them too: the men and women . . . still powerful and still dangerous and still coming, North and South and East and West" (115).

1800 Unnamed Amorous Couple

The "two figures" Horace sees locked in an embrace in "an alley-mouth" in Memphis in Sanctuary are probably outside Miss Reba's house, though it is possible they exist only in his mind, which is reeling from his encounter with Temple inside the brothel and the story she tells him about being raped. The behavior of the couple certainly matches Horace's fascinated revulsion with sexuality: the man whispers "unprintable epithet after epithet" caressingly; the woman swoons with "voluptuous ecstasy" (221).

2917 Unnamed Ancestors of Chick Mallison

In Intruder in the Dust the hills in the Beat Four section of the county remind Chick Mallison that his ancestors came to Yoknapatawpha from Scotland by way of Carolina. If Chick is thinking specifically of his maternal ancestors, these people would belong on the Stevens family tree. But he could instead (or also) be thinking of his Mallison ancestors.

3139 Unnamed Ancestors of Temple Drake

When Temple Drake Stevens describes her ancestors to Gavin Stevens, she mockingly points to "long lines of statesmen and soldiers high in the proud annals of our sovereign state" (95).

3140 Unnamed Anglo-Saxon Pioneers

The history of Mississippi as recounted in Requiem for a Nun includes "the Anglo-Saxon, the pioneer" who came into the area after it became part of the U.S. (81), part of the group referred to as "the pioneers, the hunters, the forest men with rifles" (171). The narrator identifies "the pioneer" as male - "the tall man, roaring with Protestant scripture and boiled whiskey" (81) - but with him comes his and his wife's family. We include in this group the "brawling teamsters and trappers and flatboatmen" who often are held in the jail (180).

2007 Unnamed Anzac Battalion

In "All the Dead Pilots" this Australia and New Zealand Army ("Anzac" in the story) unit is "resting in the ditch" when Sartoris returns from Amiens, but four of them are willing to forgo rest to help him with his "tight take-off" (526).

2010 Unnamed Anzac Major

In "All the Dead Pilots" this "Anzac major" sends the drunk ambulance driver back to his unit (527). (Anzac, sometimes written ANZAC, stands for 'Australian and New Zealand Army," to which many of the Allied troops fighting around Amiens belonged.)

2547 Unnamed Apprentice Blacksmith

In The Hamlet this apprentice helps Trumbull and Varner's blacksmith overhaul the machinery of the cotton gin (65).

2751 Unnamed Archaeologists 1

The archaeologists mentioned in Go Down, Moses are "a group of white men, including two women," who descend on the Indian mound to study the ways of the "old people." Most of them are bespectacled and all are dressed in "khaki clothes which had patently lain folded on a store shelf twenty-four hours ago" (37).

2867 Unnamed Archaeologists 2

In "An Error in Chemistry" a group of "archaeologists from the State University" dig up Native American relics from Pritchel's clay pit until he runs them off with a shotgun (119).

502 Unnamed Architect 1

In the "Appendix" that Faulkner wrote in 1945, this architect lays out both the Compson grounds and the Compson home. He shares the predilections of Faulkner's other architect characters for French furnishings, but there is no direct evidence that (like the architect at Sutpen's Hundred in Absalom!) he is from France.

982 Unnamed Architect 2

Intruder in the Dust includes the story of this architect, a "city man" who drives into Jefferson and crashes his expensive car into one of the stores on the Square (53). He treats his time in jail as an adventure, and tries to get the town to sell him the jail's antique "handhewn" door and hardware (53).

983 Unnamed Architect 3

In Requiem for a Nun the "architect who designed" the Confederate monument that sits at the center of Jefferson is referred to but not described (189).

3066 Unnamed Arkansas Doctor

In Light in August, when Hines realizes his daughter Milly is pregnant, he "starts out to find a doctor that would fix it" (377). He does not succeed, but according to his wife, he does "beat up a doctor in another town" (378), possibly because he refuses to perform an abortion.

3067 Unnamed Arkansas Officers

In Light in August, after Hines threatens the congregants in a Negro church with a pistol during a prayer meeting, "the law" comes and arrests him (378). 'Officers' is our way to translate "the law" into the terms of a Character database; presumably Faulkner is thinking of a few policemen or deputy sheriffs.

2545 Unnamed Armed Guards

In The Hamlet these men oversee the convict laborers at the logging camp (262).

3218 Unnamed Army General

In "By the People" and again in The Mansion this officer pins a medal on Devries; in the story it's for his heroism during the Korean War; in the novel, during World War II.

2700 Unnamed Army Lieutenant

One of the soldiers encountered by the narrator of "Two Soldiers" in the Memphis recruiting station is a lieutenant: "he had on a belt with a britching strop over one shoulder" (94). This leather band over the right shoulder is also called a "backing strop" by the boy (95); the story uses it to indicate an officer's rank.

3220 Unnamed Army Nurse 1

In The Mansion this army nurse, "kin" to a Jefferson family, comes to Jefferson after the end of World War I as the town's "first female hero," having served as a lieutenant on a base hospital in France "within sound of the guns behind Montdidier" (199).

3219 Unnamed Army Nurse 2

In "By the People" she serves in a field hospital in Korea, and helps Devries reward the soldier who saved him on the battlefield. In The Mansion she performs the same action in a field hospital somewhere else, during World War II.

3221 Unnamed Army Officer 1

This army officer - referred to as the "exec" in Devries' unit in Korea in "By the People" (134) and as the "second" in Devries' unit on a World War II battlefield in The Mansion (339) - is the executive officer who is second in command of the Negro combat unit that Devries commands. It's likely Faulkner imagined him as 'white': historically, as an officer, he would definitely have been white during World War II, and probably white in the Korean War.

3467 Unnamed Army Officer 2

According to Charles in The Mansion, it "doubtless" was some "brass-hatted theorist in Personnel" in the Army who is behind the decision to have Devries put in command of "Negro infantry" because he is a "Southerner" (339).

1523 Unnamed Army Officers

In Flags in the Dust, these are the "white officers" in charge of the African American "labor battalion" that Caspey Strother serves in during World War I (57).

3525 Unnamed Army Sergeant 1

According to the highly fictionalized if not entirely false account Strutterbuck provides about his experience in World War I in The Mansion, his hopes of getting the job driving General Pershing were thwarted by "a Sergeant Somebody, I forget his name" (84).

3526 Unnamed Army Sergeant 2

During Manfred de Spain's campaign for Mayor in The Mansion, his opponents start a rumor that he got the scar on his face from "a Missouri sergeant with a axe in a crap game" instead of from an enemy soldier while in Cuba during the Spanish-American War (142).

2825 Unnamed Artists

The narrator of "Shall Not Perish" and his mother tour an art museum in Jefferson that contains "pictures from all over the United States, painted by people who loved what they had seen or where they had been born or lived enough to want to paint pictures of it so that other people could see it too" (110). These works of art, and the people who created them, fuel the Grier boy's imagination.

2668 Unnamed Assistant District Attorney

This unnamed lawyer, appointed by the District Attorney to prosecute the case against Bookwright in "Tomorrow," is content merely to go through the required motions, presenting the evidence in less than an hour and only "bowing to the court" rather than presenting a closing argument (92). Like (almost) everyone else in the courtroom, he believes Bookwright should be acquitted.

1524 Unnamed Assistant Provost Marshal

This very peripheral character is mentioned in Flags in the Dust in one of Monaghan's anecdotes about his experiences with Bayard Sartoris in World War I as the "A.P.M." whose whistle Comyn took and used to start a melee in an Amiens night club called the Cloche-Clos (387). The Provost Marshals ran the army's military police.

2752 Unnamed Assistant to Judge Gowan

Judge Gowan's assistant in Go Down, Moses is described as a “young, brisk, slightly harried white man in glasses” (70).

504 Unnamed Auditors

In the three texts that tell the story of Flem Snopes' attempted embezzlement - "Centaur in Brass," The Town and The Mansion - these are the accountants employed by the state, or perhaps the company that bonds local officials, to audit the books at the Jefferson power plant. The third text revises the account to add that their figures are incorrect.

2260 Unnamed Aunt of Elly

In "Elly," Elly's aunt is the wife of Ailanthia's son. She lives with her husband and daughter in Mills City.

2878 Unnamed Aunt of Herman Basket

The unnamed aunt whom Herman Basket and his sister live with in "A Courtship" seems to be their surrogate parent; the other Chickasaw often hear her voice when it is raised to scold her niece's laziness. She is also actively involved in her niece's courtship. It is to ingratiate himself and his cause with her that Ikkemotubbe sends a pony and his gamecocks as gifts, and when the suitors won't behave she does not hesitate to threaten them with a shotgun. She feels that her family is superior to "Issetibbeha's whole family" (365).

1752 Unnamed Aunt of Minnie Cooper

In "Dry September" Minnie Cooper's "thin, sallow, unflagging aunt" lives with Minnie and her mother in a "small frame house" (173). After Mrs. Cooper starts "keeping to her room," this "gaunt aunt runs the house" (175).

1991 Unnamed Aunt of Mrs. Tull

In "Spotted Horses," Mrs. Tull's aunt is one of the Tull women in the wagon when the runaway pony overruns it.

2753 Unnamed Aunt of Nat Beauchamp

This "aunt" (68) in Vicksburg whom Nat visits in Go Down, Moses is only mentioned once, when Nat tells Roth Edmonds about her trip. Based on the rest of the novel, it's hard to know how this aunt is related to either of Nat's parents, Molly or Lucas.

469 Unnamed Aunt of Rider

This deeply devout and caring woman is a constant presence both in Rider's life and the story "Pantaloon in Black" in both its publications, as a short story and as a chapter in Go Down, Moses: "She was his aunt. She had raised him. He could not remember his parents at all" (238, 130). Several other characters, including her husband and members of Rider's mill gang, are referred to as her messengers, as she makes repeated efforts to rein in Rider's self-destructive bent by encouraging him to turn to family and to religion.

2372 Unnamed Aunt of Rosa Coldfield

In Absalom!, Rosa's "spinster aunt" (46) lives with the Coldfields in Jefferson and, after Rosa's mother dies, raises the girl. According to Mr. Compson, this aunt is "that strong vindictive consistent woman who seems to have been twice the man that Mr. Coldfield was and who in very truth was not only Miss Rosa's mother but her father too" (49). "A virgin at thirty-five," when Rosa is born, she brings Rosa up in a "closed masonry of females," defined by rage against "the entire male principle" in general and Thomas Sutpen in particular - at least according to Mr.

1801 Unnamed Aunt of Temple Drake

The aunt of Temple who lives "up north" in Sanctuary may really exist, though it is clear that when the local newspaper in Jackson publishes the news that Temple's father has sent his daughter to spend time with this woman, that is a fiction intended to cover Temple's disappearance from college (176).

2233 Unnamed Aunts of Judge Allison

In "Beyond" these two women live with Howard Allison and his mother during Howard's boyhood; they run the house, rigidly control Howard's life, and patronize his mother.

1525 Unnamed Australian Captain

He is mentioned in Flags in the Dust by Monaghan, who says that during the Great War Young Bayard "knocked two teeth" out of this "Australian captain" in a fight over a girl in a "London joint" (385). This officer's role closely resembles that of the unnamed Australian officer Bayard tells Rafe MacCallum about much earlier in the novel, but that officer was a major, and the nightclub was in Leicester.

1526 Unnamed Australian Major

In Flags in the Dust Young Bayard mentions this major during his talk with Rafe MacCallum "about the war"; the memory features a fight in "the Leicester lounge" in which "the Anzac lost two teeth" and Bayard himself "got a black eye" (124). The fight may have been over "two ladies," and may have been between Bayard and the Major, but none of that is made clear. Faulkner may have meant this character to be the same as the Australian captain whose teeth Bayard knocks out in a bar in London (cf.

2754 Unnamed Authors of the Bible

The first time Ike refers to the Bible in Go Down, Moses, he talks about it as the word of God: "He told in the Book," etc. (243). But when Cass challenges him on the subject of race in the Bible, repeating the familiar pro-slavery argument that the enslaved Africans were the accursed "sons of Ham" (246), Ike introduces the idea of "the men who wrote His Book for Him" (246), i.e. the human authors who "transcribed His Words," and often misquoted Him, or misrepresented His will, despite their desire to "write down the heart's truth" (247).

3289 Unnamed Automobile Owners

These are the people referred to in The Town as "somebody with an automobile" (71), a small but growing group of Yoknapatawpha residents during the period in which the novel is set. They bail Jabbo out of jail whenever one of them has a car that needs fixing.

3468 Unnamed Automobile Salesman 1

The "man" in The Mansion from whom Flem buys his automobile - he's either a salesman or a dealer - tells Flem he has to drive his car at least once a month to "keep the battery up" (172).

3476 Unnamed Automobile Salesman 2

This is the "youngish quite decent-looking" (464) car agent who brings Linda's new Jaguar down to Jefferson at the end of The Mansion.

3722 Unnamed Automobile Salesman 3

According to Boon, the Memphis man who sold Grandfather the car in The Reivers said to run the engine every day.

1527 Unnamed Aviator 1

In Flags in the Dust this is the fellow aviator at the Dayton airfield who, after trying to talk Bayard out of flying the experimental plane, loans him a helmet and goggles, and offers him a woman's garter for luck.

3109 Unnamed Aviator 2

Invented by Gavin Stevens in "A Name for the City," this aviator aspires to be the latest individual to set a new speed record for traveling around the world. Stevens gives him elementary emotions and diction, suggesting that a lack of respect for such an individual.

2988 Unnamed Aviators

During the chess game with Uncle Gavin, the narrator in "Knight's Gambit" compares his thinking to that of "airmen," who measure duration "by contiguous and not elapsed time" (184).

2353 Unnamed Aztec Chiefs

In "Lion" Quentin invokes the mystical powers of nameless Aztec chiefs in pre-Columbian Mexico (who were looked upon as being "both more and less than men," 186) to show how Lion ruled the other dogs in the hunting camp.

1590 Unnamed Baby of Countryman

The child (neither name nor gender is mentioned) who is born into the "family of country people" who are living in Jefferson and being looked after by the Red Cross and Narcissa Benbow in Flags in the Dust (72).

2306 Unnamed Baby of Louisa

This is the youngest child of Uncle Fred and Aunt Louisa. Georgie's narrative in "That Will Be Fine" does provide either its name or its gender.

3384 Unnamed Bachelors at the University of Mississippi

According to Ratliff's account in The Town, "there's a thousand extry young fellers all new and strange and interesting and male" at the University of Mississippi (271). Ratliff believes that among these young men might be Linda's future husband. Flem later thinks about this group as "a thousand young men, all bachelors and all male" - and a threat to his financial interest in Linda (304). (The University of Mississippi began admitting women in 1882.)

1932 Unnamed Bad Man

This "bad man" is the antagonist of the story - a kind of grim fairy tale - that Nancy begins to tell the Compson children (302). The question of the racial identity of this man, and the "queen" who also appears in Nancy's unfinished story, is not definitively answerable, but given how closely Nancy's tale is drawn from her own immediate life, it seems appropriate to make both the villain and the heroine of it black.

988 Unnamed Bailiff 1

In Sanctuary, the bailiff in Lee Goodwin's trial calls the court into session and swears in Temple Drake before she testifies.

989 Unnamed Bailiff 2

In The Hamlet this bailiff tries to serve Flem his papers for a court appearance and is baffled when Flem refuses to acknowledge the suit against him (355).

505 Unnamed Bailiff 3

The bailiff who appears in the trial scene in "Tomorrow" is not described, except by the actions he performs in the courtroom.

1333 Unnamed Bailiff 4

The 'bailiff' who appears in Intruder in the Dust is a product of Chick Mallison's imagination, as he fantasizes about how the character of the white population of Beat Four might be put on trial.

987 Unnamed Bailiff 5

In Requiem for a Nun, the "Bailiff" who commands "Order in the court!" in the play's brief first scene is not described at all (41). Our assumptions about his gender, race and class are based on the bailiffs who appear in courtrooms in other Yoknapatawpha fictions. We also assume that the "MAN'S VOICE" that opens the play, telling "the prisoner" from behind the theatrical curtain to "stand," also belongs to this Bailiff (38).

990 Unnamed Bailiff 6

In The Town this bailiff "hollers 'Order! Order in the court!'" at Mink Snopes' murder trial when Mink calls for Flem instead of paying attention to the proceedings (86).

2560 Unnamed Bailiffs

In The Hamlet, these "three bailiffs" who work in the courthouse have to help the two officers restrain Mink Snopes after his conviction (369).

1662 Unnamed Bakery Employee

In The Sound and the Fury this woman waits on Quentin in the bakery shop. According to Quentin, she looks "like a librarian" (125). She is very hostile to "them foreigners" in her neighborhood, and suspects that the little girl in her store may be shoplifting: "She'll hide it under her dress and a body'd never know it" (126).

1735 Unnamed Band Members 1

Readers of The Sound and the Fury never see the band that plays in the traveling show visiting Jefferson, but several of the novel's black characters talk about it, and in Jason's section both he and Uncle Job hear the music they are making. "That's a good band," Job says (248); "Dem folks sho do play dem horns" (230). Jason refers to the show's performers as "a bunch of Yankees" (230), but there's no clear evidence that they come from the North.

2426 Unnamed Band Members 2

The "band [that] plays Dixie" which Shreve imagines in Absalom! is part of a "Decoration Day" ceremony "fifty years" after Bon's June visit to Sutpen's Hundred (262). "Decoration Day" is better known as "Confederate Memorial Day," out of which the U.S. Memorial Day holiday eventually came. It was first observed soon after the Civil War ended, and in fact is still unofficially observed in some places in the South - in April, however, not "June" (262).

1457 Unnamed Band Members 3

This is the "band" that plays in The Unvanquished when Colonel Sartoris drives the first train on the newly finished track into Jefferson (226).

991 Unnamed Bandit

In "A Name for the City" and again in Requiem for a Nun, this bandit is part of the gang that is brought to the settlement; he claims that the sergeant who commanded the militia unit that captured him was "a former follower of his, the bandit's, trade" (5, 201).

992 Unnamed Bandits

The bandits in "A Name for the City" and again in Requiem for a Nun are "a gang - three or four - of Natchez Trace bandits" captured in the woods and confined in the settlement jail just long enough to stage an escape that adds a kind of shine to their image (201, 4-5). Local rumor suggests they may be associated with such historically famous bandits as the Harpes or Mason or Murrell, but the narrator seems to believe they were simply part of the "fraternity of rapine" that was a common element on the frontier (201).

986 Unnamed Bank Auditors

When The Town retells the story of Byron Snopes' robbery at the Sartoris bank, it adds these two auditors to the account; they quickly discover the crime.

508 Unnamed Bank Cashier 1

In "Dry September" this cashier is a "widower of about forty - a high-colored man, smelling always of the barber shop or of whisky" - who takes up with Minnie Cooper in "Dry September" (174). He owns "the first automobile" in Jefferson, in which he and Minnie take drives, scandalizing the town (174). About four years after their relationship begins, he moves to Memphis, where he works in another bank and, according to Jefferson gossip, is "prospering" (175).

995 Unnamed Bank Cashier 2

In Light in August, this cashier brings the sheriff the envelope that Joanna Burden deposited at the bank, addressed by her "To to be opened at my death" (294).

994 Unnamed Bank Cashier 3

In "Mule in the Yard" and again in The Town, this cashier tries to convince Mannie Hait to invest her settlement from the insurance company in bonds.

996 Unnamed Bank Cashier 4

In The Mansion, the presence in the Snopes bank of this "professional cashier" - "imported from Memphis" - is a sign of post-World War II progress, the "industrial renascence and rejuvenation" that has reached "even rural Mississippi banks" (400).

999 Unnamed Bank Cashier 5

The "teller" at the Bank of Jefferson assists Ike McCaslin and Lucas Beauchamp when Lucas collects his inheritance from Lucius Quintus Carothers McCaslin in Go Down, Moses (106).

998 Unnamed Bank Cashier 6

In "Mule in the Yard" and again in The Town, the "teller" at the bank hands Mannie Hait her money when she cashes out her insurance settlement (253, 244). (There is also a "cashier" on hand at the time, so we create two characters - though usually the terms "teller" and "cashier" are synonymous.)

997 Unnamed Bank Customers 1

In Requiem for a Nun, Temple Drake's account of the confrontation between Nancy and the cashier mentions that "fifty people" were waiting to get into the bank when it happened (96).
