Description: 

The place where Gavin Stevens changes trains to "catch the express from Memphis to New York" in this novel is identified as "Mottstown junction" (107). (In Faulkner's other Yoknapatawpha fictions, this change would occur north of Yoknapatawpha, in the town he calls "Memphis Junction.") Mottstown is the seat of the county just south of Yoknapatawpha, so it may also be the town "in the next county" where Flem and Eula marry (6), though that is also confusing; several other fictions state that they marry in Jefferson.
