In "Vendee" and again in The Unvanquished Bayard distinguishes the "town people" who attend Granny's funeral from the "hill people" who are there as well. They include Mrs. Compson, who is one of the townspeople who arrange for the Episcopal preacher from Memphis to officiate at the funeral and who offer Bayard and Ringo a home until Colonel Sartoris returns from the fight. These people stand under umbrellas and get out of the way of Fortinbride and the hill people who bury Granny.
