Mrs. Habersham

Character Key Number: 
Display Name: 
Mrs. Habersham
Sort Name: 
Habersham, Mrs.
Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

The older of the "two ladies in fur coats" in "Two Soldiers" whom Mr. Foote summons to help with the Grier boy (90). She may be a social worker, like the younger woman, or as is more likely, just a caring member of the community. Her family name is one of the oldest in Yoknapatawpha. Because the is wearing a "fur coat" and is apparently married, we assume she is not Miss Habersham, the impoverished "spinster of seventy" in Intruder in the Dust (92) and elsewhere.
