When Joe Brown, in Light in August, asks the "old negro woman" sitting on the porch of her cabin about who lives there, she replies "Aint nobody here but me and the two little uns" (433-34). She adds that these two children are "too little" to carry a message to town (434), but neither she nor the narrative say anything else about them.
