This novel takes place in northeastern Yoknapatawpha, the part of the county where the MacCallums and the McCallums live, and the narrative includes the family in its list of other families in the area: "Gowries and Ingrums and Workitts and McCallums" (33) - though elsewhere the economic and social standing of MacCallum|McCallum family is considerably higher than these others'. No McCallums directly appear, but one is mentioned by name: Buddy. The "German luger" with which Vinson Gowrie is shot was brought "home from France in 1919" by him before the murderer acquired it (175).
