What types of sickness did Thomas Jefferson have as a child?

Violent headache for two days after behaving awkwardly in front of a girl he fancied (March 1764, age 20); Six week headache after his mother's death on March 31, 1776; Six weeks of headache soon after arriving, unhappy and homesick, as minister to France in 1785; While overburdened as Secretary of State, headaches recurred when he learned that a friend had become ill, but recovered (April 1790); About this time he had a second set of headaches, lasting from sunrise to sunset each day for 6 weeks.

Not so far as is known, why? Of course methods of child rearing were very different then than they are now. He might very well have received corporal punishment which, while perfectly acceptable in his day, would be considered excessive or even abusive today.

historians are not quite sure why Jefferson didn't set his slaves free. he inherited slaves from various people including his father, but Jefferson knew that slavery was wrong. so your question is a good one... why did he continue to own slaves? some people have suggested that thomas Jefferson tho…ught that setting his slaves free would only make them subject to re-enslavement by someone else. The next person who owned them might end up being very harsh to them. So why did he relly keep them though? No one really knows for sure. > I would say rather, that Jefferson was a man of his time, and as such was a white supremacist. Jefferson speaks extensively on his feelings (and they are just that, and in no way scholarly or scientific) about the "races" or "species" of man in his "Notes on The State of Virginia"(1781). He states that, "...never yet could I find that a black had uttered a thought above the level of plain narration..."(266) He goes on to bash and attempt to discredit Black artists of the time Ignatius Sancho and Phyllis Wheately. He goes on to make asinine comparisons between American Slavery and Ancient Roman Slavery, and the intellectual and artistic development of Free whites and enslaved Blacks before eventually concluding, "...as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in endowments both of body and mind" (270). And why would he keep his inherited slaves? Well, he goes on to say that, "This unfortunate difference of colour, and perhaps of faculty, is a powerful obstacle to the emancipation of these people" (270). And all of this was written several years before Jefferson impregnated his slave girl Sally Hemings (about 16 at the time). Inherited from Jefferson's wife Martha , Sally and Martha are said to have been half-sisters (i.e. Martha's dad enjoyed sex with his slaves as well). Their children, remained his slaves into adulthood as did Sally who wasn't freed until after Jefferson's death in 1826. So Thomas Jefferson is a founding father, and known as a great thinker and proponent of liberty, however, a closer look at his life reveals that he was FAR from perfect, and like many white Americans (and Europeans) of his time did not believe that non-whites were equal to whites.

Thomas Jefferson's presidency initiated the quarter-century rule ofthe "Virginia Dynasty" (1801-1825), including the presidencies ofloyal Jeffersonians James Madison (1809-1817) and James Monroe(1817-1825). As the center of political gravity shifted southwardwith the Republican ascendancy, the party… gained new strength tothe north, progressively marginalizing Federalists as an effectivenational opposition party. But the founders' fantasy offaction-free politics was not to be fulfilled. Emerging splitsamong Republicans themselves pitted orthodox, strictconstructionist "Old Republicans" against "National Republicans"who favored a more positive and activist (according to critics,Hamiltonian) conception of federal power. Quarrels amongJeffersonian-Republicans foreshadowed the division betweenJacksonian Democrats, self-proclaimed legatees of Jeffersonianorthodoxy, and Whigs who promoted a neo-Federalist, NationalRepublican policy agenda while warning against "King Andrew's"dangerous consolidation of authority.

No, having the same blood type (ABO) will not make a child sick. If the parents have other, rare genes in common, the child can become sick due to rare inherited disorders. If the parents both have sickle cell anemia, for example, the child might be even sicker than either parent.
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Thomas Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence and the founder of University of Virginia. He was also a good example of religious freedom and was the beginning to stop slavery; also one of the most well know writer he was also the 3 rd president… of the United States. He was a great person for his time. He also was in a very rich family. He lived in Monticello in a gigantic house in the country side with his family. He was a public official historian, philosopher, and plantation owner; he served his country for 50 years in so many different ways. He was the best writer of his time and maybe history. Altogether he was a very accomplished man in history. His father, Peter Jefferson, was a well accomplished planter and surveyor and his mother, Jane Randolph, was from a very popular family in Virginia. He also had lots of land that he inherited from his dad. He started to work on his house when he was only 26 years old, witch was very old for a boy at his time kids did not live very long. He married Martha Skelton when he was at the age of 19 years old. He lived with her for 10 years until she died. He stayed by her bedside for three weeks and she told him to never remarry then four days later she died. But they had six kids but only two lived to adulthood because of the lack of medicine. After he went to college at William and Mary, in his early life he practiced law and was in a local government as a magistrate, and country lieutenant. He was a member of the Continental Congress, because he was one of the best writers of his time he was chosen to write the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The document basically meant that all men were equal despite birth, wealth, or status, and that the government was to help them not be in control of the people. Jefferson was succeeded as president in 1809 by his friend James Madison. The last 17 years of his life where spent at home in Monticello. At that time he sold his books to the government. At the age of 76 he foundered the of University of Virginia in 1819, and planed how it was built and run. He was always changing the house around and shifted things, modifying Monticello until he died. After that Thomas Jefferson's best achievements where that he served as the Governor of Virginia, as a US Minister to France, as a Secretary of State under George Washington, Vice President of the United states under John Adams then two times as President of the United states (1801-1809). On his grave stone he mentioned none of his big accomplishments. Instead it read "Author of the Declaration of American Independence, of the state of Virginia for religious freedom, and father of the University of Virginia" he requested not another word. Finally in the final couple years of his extraordinary life, he settled down and mostly stayed at home reading. He was waiting for a special day to die July 4. When that day had come, on July 4, 1826, the 50 th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson died at Monticello. I think Thomas Jefferson was a great figure and a good role model. I also think he is one of the best writers and presidents and he was a hard working person. He should always be remembered in history for the great things he did for this country. Thomas Jefferson was without a doubt a great man. (MORE)
