Description: 

Flem Snopes grew up in a family of sharecroppers who repeatedly moved from one "worn-out tenant farm" to another (275). According to "Barn Burning," in his young life Flem's younger brother Sarty has lived at "a dozen" of them. The farms that are specifically mentioned in various texts are owned by De Spain ("Barn Burning"), Anse Hollard (The Hamlet) and Will Varner (the Snopes trilogy) - these are all in Yoknapatawpha. Our map uses the location we assign the farm at the beginning of "Barn Burning," which is owned by a landlord named Harris; it's in Grenier County. Presumably most of the places the Snopeses worked were out of Yoknapatawpha, since Jody and Will Varner have not heard of them when Ab contracts to work one of the Varner farms in Frenchman's Bend.
