What U.S. President fathered five children from one of his slaves?

Thomas Jefferson is alleged to have fathered Sally Hemings six children. The first of the children died in infancy.

DNA evidence connects the Jefferson line to the Hemings line, but does not conclusively prove that Thomas Jefferson was their father.
