Description: 

Mentioned in this story as one of the locations where Granny and Ringo stole mules, Oxford is also a real location in north-central Mississippi, about 75 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee. Oxford is the county seat of Lafayette County and the location of the University of Mississippi. This is where Faulkner lived for much of his life and is the basis for his fictional town of Jefferson, Mississippi. Oxford itself appears under its real name in the vicinity of Jefferson in texts like Sanctuary, and Absalom, Absalom!
