Sally Hemings, the slave of a U.S. president who had 6 children by him. She was owned by President Thomas Jefferson through inheritance of his wife, Martha Jefferson. Never marrying, Hemings bore six children with Jefferson, four lived until they were adults. She was born in Charles City County, Virginia in 1773. She is the descendant of an African slave and English sea captain; her grandmother Susana and John Wayles, Susana’s owner. I thought these people believed slaves were inferior. Maybe I am mistaken. Hemings’ mother, Betty, also bore children with her master, John Wayles. Wayles was a lawyer, slave trader, planter, and the father-in-law of Jefferson. Wayles migrated from Lancaster, England to Virginia in the 1730s.
