Jupiter

Born at Shadwell the same year as Jefferson, Jupiter was Jefferson’s trusted personal servant and later a hostler, coachman, and stonecutter.  When Jefferson attended the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Jupiter bought Jefferson’s books, fiddlestrings, and wig powder, paid the bills of the baker, shoemaker, and washerwoman, and collected debts.  He lent Jefferson money to provide tips to the enslaved domestic servants of his Williamsburg friends.  H
