Comptons
   In “The Curse of Yig” and “The Mound,” Sally (“Grandma”), married to Joe, mother of Clyde, is a first-generation pioneer, “a veritable mine of anecdote and folklore.” She is the source of the story about their neighbors, the Davises, in “The Curse of Yig,” and it is she who discovers Walker Davis’s body.
