It is clearly evident that you are wound up with the slavery issue and know nothing of the DNA Study and what it entailed. I worked on it and I know. Dr Foster tested a known carrier of Jefferson and Hemings DNA........this does not mean THOMAS. It means "a Jefferson" and Eston's family claimed it was "a Jefferson uncle or nephew."

You claim that Martha Jefferson was a half sister of Sally Hemings. Have you read Dr and Mrs James F. McMurry's excellent book, "Anatomy of a Scandal, Thomas Jefferson and the Sally Story?" This well and long researched book concludes that that was only a rumor.....not fact.

There is nothing written that TJ loved any slave child as much as his own children.
