review Martha Jefferson Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB summary · eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ William G. Hyland Jr. William G. Hyland Jr. ↠ 3 review Martha Jefferson is the first and only biography of Thomas Jefferson's greatest love and true kindred spirit who died an untimely death at the young age of thirty three in 1782 Drawing on a wealth of newly probed sources including family letters documents and the handwritten notes left by Jefferson's famed biographer Dumas Malone William G Hyland Jr captures the char. Bad on me when I continued reading this biography when the author admits readily that there are almost no original sources about poor old Martha s short life This book smacked of being a love story to Jefferson constantly challenging all the stories and speculations regarding Sally Hemings and her mother Betty while giving us very few facts about Martha No doubt is used liberally throughout the book as the author speculates on Martha s contributions to the design of Monticello her relationship with her husband and Jefferson s development as a person and thinker etc etc I would have been happier if Hyland had researched the life of the upper class aristocratic white woman during the time of the Revolution and told us what is known about women s history about women like Martha particularly when there is almost nothing to prove his thesis An adjective that Hyland adores is infamous He can barely write the name Sally Hemings without prefacing it with infamous While it is true that we have no absolute evidence that some of Sally s children were fathered by Jefferson we do know that DNA from Jefferson s family proves the familial relationship between those children and the Jefferson family Why then is Sally infamous She was an enslaved woman and we all know or should know that to be an enslaved person meant that you were considered less than human property and could be abused and even murdered without the law objecting We all know that many white men raped enslaved women with no repercussions Even Hyland s hero Jefferson could have been guilty of thisMartha asked for and received assurance from Jefferson on her deathbed that he would not marry again Selfish yes but Hyland explains that Martha had been terrorized by her stepmothers without proof I couldn t actually find evidence in the book that Martha was misused by her stepmothers Honestly though I began skimming the book after my eyes were unable to stop rolling from the speculative no doubts and other dreamy ideas of the author s Can we believe that a very healthy very physical young man like Jefferson would not only remain a widower but never have sex again Sally s mother Betty had been owned by Martha s father When Martha married Betty and her young children went with Martha to their new home Years after Martha died a rumor surfaced that Betty s children had been fathered by Martha s father thereby making Sally her sister You can imagine Hyland s head blowing off over this speculation He makes some reasonable statements about why this couldn t be so Martha s father was ill for the period before Sally s birth and living on a property miles away from where Betty was living at the time for example but the reason he gives as irrefutable There wasn t any scandal in the newspapers of the time accusing Martha s father John Wayles of fathering children with Betty Hemings Can Hyland a historian actually believe this John Wayles was not only a landowner he also had a business selling enslaved people Fathering children with enslaved women was not unusual Why would any of his peers accuse him in the newspapers of thisAltogether this book is a very messy biography Hyland should have contributed to the large numbers of Jefferson studies instead of this speculative sloppy attemptRIP Martha And Sally and BEtty We most likely will never know anything about any of
