Cornelius Talmadge is a 72-year-old resident of the Springfield Retirement Castle. His family had brought him to the Retirement Castle on November 10, 1997, but he broke free and went on a bender. He returned on November 16, 1997, when Homer Simpson had been disguised as Talmadge while Apu pretended to be married to Marge.

Cornelius Talmadge was presumably born on November 10, 1925. He probably had a good job, as he was shown to wear a clean suit.
