6. When we looked at our house before we bought...
the black family that was living in it had a book on this, "Jefferson's Children", as their coffee table book, so I began leafing through it. Absolutely fascinating! I had to buy my own copy.

One of the younger black descendants had managed to contact quite a few of the other descendants, and it tracked their stories. Some were very black, others could pass for white, and others-- you couldn't tell their family mix had ever had a drop of black in it.

It detailed a reunion of the black and white Jefferson descendants, including the grandson of General Lucian Truscott.

I hadn't heard about Jefferson's brother being Eston's possible father, but I guess that makes more sense if he was younger.
