Jefferson freed Eston and his older brother Madison Hemings in his will, as they had not yet come of age at his death. They each married and lived with their families and mother Sally in Charlottesville, Virginia , until her death in 1835. Both brothers and their young families moved to Chillicothe, Ohio , to live in a free state , where Eston Hemings earned a living as a musician and entertainer.

When they settled in Madison, Wisconsin, they changed their surname (to Jefferson) and their race, passing permanently into the white world. The Jefferson sons were popular figures in the state capital, first in the hotel trade and later in business and battle. In the Civil War, John Wayles Jefferson was chosen major in the 8 th Wisconsin infantry regiment and rose to the rank of colonel after more than three years of long marches and bruising combat in the Mississippi Valley campaign. His brother, Beverly , owned the principal carriage and omnibus firm in Madison.

In 1787, Hemings, aged 14, [1] accompanied Jefferson's youngest daughter Mary ("Polly") to London and then to Paris, where the widowed Jefferson, aged 44 at the time, was serving as the United States Minister to France . Hemings spent two years there. It is believed by most historians that Jefferson began a sexual relationship with Hemings in France or soon after their return to Monticello . [2] Hemings remained enslaved in Jefferson's house until his death.

Sally Hemings (1773-1835) was lady's maid to Jefferson's daughters, and also worked as a chambermaid and seamstress.  She spent two years in Paris, after accompanying nine-year-old Mary Jefferson across the ocean.  According to her son Madison, Sally Hemings began a relationship with Jefferson in Paris and bore him a number of children.
