All About Me!

Thomas Jefferson

I was the 3rd president in the United States.
Writing the Declaration of Independence.

      I was born on April 13, 1743. I'm the 3rd out of ten children. I was married to my third cousin, Martha Wayles Skelton for 10 years until she died from illness. We have 6 children, only two made it adulthood.

     When I was 16, I entered college. I worked with James Madison, Albert Gallatin, and George Washington. I started being president March 4, 1801 til March 1809. I was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, American Founding Father, and 3rd president of the United States.

   I am a man who carved friendship, a slave holder who preached equality, a peaceful man, and a dreamer. I inherited one hundred and thirty five slaves with my wife, before she died.        

1.) How many presidency terms did I have?

2.) Who was I married to?

3.) How many children do I have, and how many are still living?

The source I used to fine all my information was my text book and the computer.
