The first McCaslin to appear in the fictions is "Uncle Ike McCaslin" (69). He appears in an appropriate setting - the big woods - but merely as one of the older hunters who also plays poker with the rest. His 'title' of "Uncle" is unexplained; there is no mention of the family he belongs to, but his dialect ("noways," "durn," 74) identifies him as lower class.
