"The DNA study, combined with multiple strands of currently available documentary and statistical evidence, indicates a high probability that Thomas Jefferson fathered Eston Hemings, and that he most likely was the father of all six of Sally Hemings's children appearing in Jefferson's records. Those children are Harriet, who died in infancy; Beverly; an unnamed daughter who died in infancy; Harriet; Madison; and Eston."
Additionally, "The DNA testing found no genetic link between the Hemings and Carr descendants, refuting Jefferson’s grandchildren’s assertion that his Carr nephews fathered Sally Hemings’s children."

Fact: Her youngest son was conceived after their return from France, and there were several other male Jeffersons available to be the father. Until Thomas Jefferson's DNA can be accessed, which so far has been refused, whether or not he is the father can be neither proved nor disproved. All of Sally Hemming's descendants have been accepted into the Jefferson Family Association, according to what I have read.

Not sure what the thinking is today. Can anyone describe it in 50 words or fewer?

Also, see Monticello.org at: https://www.Monticello.org/site/plantation-and-slavery/appendix-h-sally-hemings-and-her-children. President Jefferson never publically denied assertions concerning his slave children. In fact, they were the ONLY slaves given freedom in his will. And thanks to his Legislative efforts, they lived near Monticello as Free persons of color, according to the 1830 Albemarle County census. In the Albemarle County 1833 census they are all listed as free WHITE persons.

Where is the evidence that a marriage ceremony between Sally Hemmings and Thomas Jefferson ever took place? Where is evidence that Jefferson referred to Hemmings in public as his wife? What legal marital rights did Hemmings enjoy as the wife of Jefferson?
