Sarah Sally Hemings (Shadwell, Albemarle County, Virginia, circa 1773 Charlottesville, Virginia, 1835) was a mixed race slave owned by the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. She was said to be the half-sister of Jefferson's wife, Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson.Journalists and others alleged during and after Jefferson's presidency that he may have fathered several children with Hemings after his wife's death, but few historians credited the allegation. However, new analysis of the historical data, bolstered by 1998 DNA testing that indicated that a male in Jefferson's line was the father of at least one of Sally Hemings's children, led to a re-ignition of the debate.
