was buried in St. Peters Cemetery in Oxford on July 7, 1962,
the day after he died in Byhalia, Mississippi. The Falkner family
plot, where his grandparents, parents, youngest brother and infant
daughter were buried, was full, so his grave was located elsewhere
just below a hillside and beneath the canopy of several white
oak trees. In keeping with Faulkners usual habits, the family
issued an appeal for privacy: Until he is buried he belongs
to the family. After that, he belongs to the world.
