Sally Hemings' son, Eston, is born. (In 1998, a DNA study establishes that a male with a Jefferson Y chromosome fathered Eston. A report by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in 2000, concluded there is a high probability that Thomas Jefferson was the father of Eston Hemings, and that he was likely the father of all six of Sally Hemings's children listed in Monticello records.)
Retired from the presidency and public life.
Remodeling of Monticello and construction of dependencies largely completed. Vegetable garden platform completed.
