69. Marshal, Eliot, "Which Jefferson Was the Father?", Science (8 Jany 1999) 153a-155a. The claim that Thomas Jefferson fathered at least one child by his slave Sally Hemings got a big boost in credibility last November 1998 when scientists announced in Nature that they had found DNA sequences in the Y chromosome of the Jefferson family that matched DNA from the Hemings family. The finding set off a flood of news reports declaring that the third U.S. president had, as rumored, fathered an illegitimate child by Sally Hemings. But now the authors of the report say that the data establish only that Thomas Jefferson was one of several candidates for the paternity of Eston Hemings, Sally's fifth child.

70. Foster, E.A. et al: "The Thomas Jefferson paternity case", 397 Nature 32 (1999), Scientific Correspondence. Foster, et al. reply: "It is true that men of Randolph Jefferson's family could have fathered Sally Hemings' later children. Space constraints prevented us from expanding on alternative interpretations of our DNA analysis, including the interesting one proposed by Davis. The title assigned to our study was misleading in that it represented only the simplest explanation of our molecular findings: namely, that Thomas Jefferson, rather than one of the Carr brothers, was likely to have been the father of Eston Hemings Jefferson."

71. Davis, Gary, "The Thomas Jefferson paternity case" 397 Nature 32 (1999), Scientific Correspondence. "If the data of Foster et al. are accurate, then any male ancestor in Thomas Jefferson's line, white or black, could have fathered Eston Hemings. Plantations were inbred communities, and the mixing of racial types was probably common. As slave families were passed as property to the owner's offspring along with land and other property, it is possible that Thomas Jefferson's father, grandfather or paternal uncles fathered a male slave whose line later impregnated another slave, in this case Sally Hemings. Sally herself was a light mulatto, known even at that time to be Thomas Jefferson's wife's half sister."

72. Abbey, David M., "The Thomas Jefferson paternity case" 397 Nature 32 (1999), Scientific Correspondence. "The DNA analysis of Y-chromosome haplotypes used by Foster et al. to evaluate Thomas Jefferson's alleged paternity of Eston Hemings Jefferson, the last child of his slave Sally Hemings, is impressive. However, the authors did not consider all the data at hand in interpreting their results."
