These "countrymen" - inhabitants of the countryside around Jefferson rather than town residents - don't appear directly in The Unvanquished, but they have left mark on the "wooden steps scuffed by the heavy bewildered boots" when they come into town to consult Ben Redmond in his law office (248); the fact that they are "bewildered" suggests their class status, and seems also intended to say something about Redmond's practice.
