m. Martha Wayles(Jefferson referred to her as "Patty" after the birth of their daughter, Martha (who was called "Patsy")-
remember, Martha was previously married to Bathhurst Skelton. Martha and Bathhurst had one child, a son, John, who died shortly before Thomas and Martha married)

8. Randolph Jefferson (Twin of Anna Scott)

m. Ann Lewis

Two other children were born to Peter Jefferson and Jane Randolph, neither survived infancy or died shortly after birth. I do have most of the information from these lines as well as the information on Thomas Jefferson's children, but my search habits are that I do not include information that has not been checked as it is easier to check it out then add it to my sheets. I call to your attention that Peter Jefferson was not the only male Jefferson in Virginia in these time frames and it is possible that your Nancy might come through Peter's brother Field Jefferson, or as a descendant of "John Jefferson" who was in Virginia long before the first Thomas Jefferson (TJ's great-grandfather). All historical sources that I have seen as well as the references to this Jefferson by TJ himself in his autobiograph, have never been able to link "John" to the family of TJI.

Please let me know if you would like to have a list of the books that I have used to prepare this information, and I will be happy to forward a list. You did not say if you have an estimated date for Nancy's location in Virginia. Please let me know if I may be of further assistance. Kathryn
