The two Benbows whose names appear in the novel (they themselves do not appear) are identified as part of the Sartoris story. "Miss Narcissa Benbow" is referred to in passing as the woman Bayard Sartoris persuaded to marry him (124). Their son Benbow is mentioned as too young "to hold a gun" when Charles Mallison refers to the hunting trip he and Aleck Sander make to Sartoris (254).
