At this writing, October 2001, Dumas Malone's 6-volume 'Jefferson and His Time' is generally thought to be the most authoritative biography of Thomas Jefferson. However, in his first volume of that set, 'Jefferson the Virginian', Malone acknowledges higher authority to Henry S. Randall's ante bellum (pre Civil War) biography, 'The Life of Thomas Jefferson'. This is not to be confused with a 1993 book, 'Thomas Jefferson: A Life' written by a Williard S. Randall. This latter work treats the idea, popularized by Fawn Brodie, that Thomas Jefferson sired children of his daughter's maid, Sarah (Sally) Hemming. DNA research, published in the November 5, 1998, edition of 'Nature', demonstrates that the only possible candidate would be Hemming's youngest son, who was conceived when Jefferson was 65 years old; a time when there were dozens of young men within the same county, with the same DNA Y-chromosome as Thomas Jefferson. Do not confuse the biography by Henry S. Randall with the book by Williard S. Randall.
