Writer John Grisham and the Hocutt Family

I have recently finished reading Grisham's novel, The Last Juror, that was set in fictional Ford County, Miss. Playing a part in the novel is the Dr. Miles Hocutt (deceased) family consisting of son Max (81), twin girls Wilma and Gilma (77) and baby Melberta (73). The protagonist, Willie Traynor, first rents a garage appartment from the "children" and after Max's death buys the Hocutt mansion situated on 5 acres of land and the seldom used Hocutt Mecedes automobile. On pages 28 and 29 he gives a humorous sketch of the Hocutt's and reasons they never married. On page 237 he starts the description of Max's death and burial and his acquisition of the Hocutt family assests. I once read that magazine editors think they have "hit it big" if their magazine is referred to in televised media. Well, our Hocutt family has made the ranks of a best seller! Must mean we have some degree of importance or, at best, notoriety.
