The "Theophilus McCaslin" in Absalom! is not a grandson of Ike, but an "old man" who attends the funeral that Judith Sutpen holds for Bon (122). He sounds exactly like the Uncle Buck who has already appeared in two stories with the same Civil War setting, though the novel doesn't make connect this Theophilus with that Buck.
