The Family of Thomas Jefferson

We've mentioned before that Thomas Jefferson was a redhead. Anyway, we now have a few redheads from his family to add. He wife Martha Wayles Skelton had auburn hair and hazel eyes. His daughter Martha Jefferson Randolph had red hair, and apparently resembled her father quite closely. Also Jefferson's grandson John Wayles Jefferson was red-haired - his grandmother was Sarah "Sally" Hemings, Jefferson's slave, with whom he was said to have had a long term relationship which produced several children.
