Re: Jefferson-Hemings
In Response To: Re: Jefferson-Hemings ()

I never get involved in disagreements like this, but something struck a nerve this time. The Problem with knowing our history is that most descendent of slave owners will not share their knowledge and records for fear of having to admit that they have African American cousins. If the former President was not doing some midnight sleep walking, I bet you he knew who was. To many people being given their freedom for him not to have known something.
One other point, if one of the Heming offspring has some Jefferson blood, doesn't that make him a member of the Jefferson family? So either directly or in directly Thomas Jefferson has some relatives with African American blood.
