Biography: 

This is one of two entries for the "half-breed servants" on the Haitian sugar plantation where Sutpen puts down the slave rebellion (199). The novel's references to the people it identifies that way are contradictory. It says "all the servants, the half breeds, were missing" on the eve of the rebellion (203), and also that two "frightened half-breed servants" remained to assist in the defense of the plantation house (199). This entry represents the servants who go missing, including "one of the half breeds" who is found dead two days afterwards (203).
