Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

In The Town, Mr. Hovis is the Sartoris bank cashier who receives a "coca cola" at the bank's closing time (323). (If in Faulkner's imagination he's related to the Mrs. Hovis who appears in the earlier short story "Uncle Willy," the novel doesn't mention the connection.)
