You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

Thomas Jefferson lived with Sally Hemings for 37 years, from 1789 until his
death in 1826.

She was at his death bed when he died.

She was provided for in his will.

No other man had that sort of contact with her.

You cannot name even one possible candidate father, much less many.
