Martha and Thomas Jefferson lived in Monticello. They both shared a love of music, Thomas would play the violin while Martha accompanied him on the piano. They had eight children, but only two survived until adulthood.
Martha never served as first lady, she was in delicate health for most of her marriage.She died
after the birth of her last child. Jefferson was inconsolable, he fainted and many feared he would never revive. After the funeral, he stayed in his room for three weeks, tormented by grief.
Thomas Jefferson loved Martha Jefferson so much that he was asked so envoy to France with Silas Deane and Benjamin Franklin and he said no because his wife’s health was too fragile and he didn’t want to be away from her. Richard Henry Lee then sent him a letter telling him to ditch the wife and take the opportunity. Thomas Jefferson then responded in the saltiest letter ever.
