Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

This character is mentioned in The Reivers as an "idiot nephew or cousin or something" of Dan Grinnup, and like him is a last living descendant of the Grenier family, perhaps the oldest white family in Yoknapatawpha (7). He lives "in a tent in the river jungle beyond Frenchman's Bend," on land that had once been part of the big antebellum "plantation" belonging to Louis Grenier (the "Frenchman" from whom the Bend gets its name, 7). (In "Hand upon the Waters" and Intruder in the Dust this man is named Lonnie Grinnup, and lives in a shack on the same location as the tent.)
