Beverly, a carpenter and fiddler.
In 1822 at the age of 24, Beverly "ran away" from Monticello and was not pursued. His sister Harriet Hemings, 21, followed in the same year. Madison Hemings said that Beverley and Harriet each entered white society in Washington, DC, according to their appearance, and each married well.
