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.

No, the oldest ones were not Jeffersons, DNS says. I think the youngest four were proven to have some male Jefferson DNA. They look like him. The older ones do not. I think that Sally Hemmings was more than 1/8 black, but was by all accounts a very lovely woman.
