Jill's Bedroom: The two front bedrooms were occupied by various children at Rowan Oak during Faulkner’s lifetime. His stepchildren Malcolm and Victoria, his daughter Jill, his nephews Jimmy and Chooky and his niece Dean all enjoyed Rowan Oak. Faulkner often entertained the children by telling ghost stories. One in particular was about Judith Sheegog who was unlucky in love and flung herself off the balcony when faced with becoming an old maid. Faulkner told the children that she was buried under the magnolia tree in the original garden opposite the house. Quite possibly, Faulkner was trying to ensure the children would exercise caution when on the balcony.
