Please read the book "The Jefferson-Hemings Controversy - Report of the Scholars Commission" edited by Robert F. Turner, before stating that it is a fact that Thomas Jefferson had any children with Sally Hemings. The DNA test did NOT prove that TJ fathered Eston Hemings but that one current descendant of Eston Hemings had the Jefferson DNA haplotype. There are @ 19 Jefferson males that could've been responsible for Eston's paternity and even also male slaves sired by an ancestor of Thomas Jefferson. Their unanimous view is that this allegation is by no means proven and all but one state that after @ a year of examining the issues find that TJ was not responsible for any of Sally Hemings children.
