    Notes 
    • "Just why Eve Tarwater never married any one of her common law husbands is a matter of conjecture. It could have been that there were no ministers around or Justices of the Peace, but that seems unlikely in the late 18th century. Perhaps the reason was the one a colored woman gave for not marrying: 'She did not want a lazy good-for-nothin' man round eatin' up her chillin's food.' However it was, Eve Tarwater was quite a character; her children when grown were reliable, responsible, and respected people, all of them solid citizens of Missouri. So far as the family legend goes, Ben's paternal grandfather was out of the blue, no record from whence he came or whither he went." Jane Dunaway
