Sarah “Sally” Hemings (c. 1773 – 1835) was an enslaved woman of mixed race owned by President Thomas Jefferson of the United States. A consensus of historians believe Jefferson was the father of her six children,[1] born after the death of his wife Martha Jefferson, and that he had a long-term relationship with her. Four children survived to adulthood.[2] Hemings died in Charlottesville, Virgina, in 1835.[3] “}}
