I think it's interesting that the Hemmings that have been the most vocal about being Jefferson descendents were proven not to be descendents.
And the ones who never had too much to do with that claim are the ones that the DNA proved to be fathered by SOME Jefferson male.
Personally, I think it probably was Jefferson in at least one case.
I can't remember which one, but there is a granddaughter that looks just like him, on the Hemmings side.

All of her children were Jefferson's and all looked a great deal like him. The daughter was allowed to "run away" to Pennsylvania. All looked virtually white since their mother was only 1/8 black.
