Hi Katherine -- Mary Jemison's family is as below (I don't have a source for it nor do I know how accurate it is.)

Thomas mar 4 times and had: By Squakie Wife, a son Buffalo Tom; By Cayuga Wife, James Jemison, a daughter; By 1st Seneca Wife, son, daughter, George; By 2nd Seneca Wife, Jacob, Goansan, Unidentified child, John Jesse.

By Hiokatoo, Mary had 6 children: John 1766-1817, Nancy 1773 or 76 - 1839; Betsey Unknown-1839; Polly bef or early 1779 - 1839; Jane 1782-1797; Jesse 1784-5 - 1812 killed by brother.
