The Jefferson family papers consists of the scrapbooks of John Wayles Jefferson and Beverly Jefferson; photographs of John
Wayles Jefferson, Anne Wayles Jefferson, and Beverly Jefferson; and other material of a genealogical nature of Carl S. Jefferson
and his wife, Esther Stowe Magill.
Eston Hemings (1808-1856) was the youngest child of Sally Hemings and, it is widely believed, Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826).
Granted his freedom at the age of 21 by Jefferson's will, Hemings initially pursued a career as a wood maker. In 1832 he married
Julia Ann Isaacs and in 1837 they moved to Chillicothe, Ohio. There Eston Hemings pursued a career as a professional violinist
and band leader. In 1852, the Hemings moved to Madison, Ohio, changed their surname to Jefferson and passed into white society.
Eston and Julia Ann Hemings had three children: John Wayles Jefferson (1835-1892), Anne Wayles Jefferson (1836-1866), and
Beverly Frederick Jefferson (1838-1908).
