In "A Rose for Emily," "Miss Emily's relations in Alabama" (126) are "two female cousins" (127) who had fallen out with Emily's father in the past. During Emily and Homer's courtship the town sends for them, but soon discovers that they are "even more Grierson than Miss Emily had ever been" and is glad when they leave (127).
