No. There is no way that Thomas Jefferson and Jefferson Davis were the same person. The reasons are thusly: Jefferson was born April, 3, 1743 and he died July 4, 1826. Davis w…as alive during the Civil War.
The one and only president of the Confederacy was born in Kentucky, but also lived in Louisiana and Mississippi. He was serving as a U.S. Senator from Mississippi when Souther…n states began seceding from the Union in 1860 and 1861.
Jefferson Davis was president of the Confederate States of America.His first wife Sarah Taylor died of malaria only three months after they were married.He was also a senator …from Mississippi.

His longtime companion was Sally Hemings, who may have actually been a half-sister to his late wife. She bore him six children; he freed them all when they became adults. Jeff…erson didn't treat Sally as a slave, but rather as a helpmeet. He could not have married her, because of the customs (and laws) of the time. In the modern age, he may well have.
These two men were not related in way, shape or form. Both Lincoln and Davis were born in Kentucky.
Chief Justice John Marshall and President Thomas Jefferson were distant cousins, and bitter political rivals. Although related, the men despised each other.

Thomas Jefferson Davis has written: 'Our Davis family history' -- subject(s): Genealogy
In US Civil War
Jefferson Davis was the president of the Confederacy. Like Lincoln, he was born in Kentucky. Unlike Lincoln, Davis had a strong military background which may or may not have b…een an asset. Nevertheless, Davis was a West Point graduate, a Mexican War hero and a former Secretary of War in the US. Davis moved south from Kentucky and he and his family were part of the Southern landed aristocracy. He also served as a congressman as well as his aforementioned Secretary of War position.
