NAME NOTE: Along with being a major political figure, Thomas Jefferson of Virginia had just been elected 3rd President of the United States in 1801. He was a founding father of America and principal author of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. He served as President from 1801 to 1809 and signed a bill into law in 1807 that banned the importation of slaves into the U.S. It is not noted anywhere, but Thomas J. Everingham was probably named after him.
