Yes, he did. In fact, Thomas Edison married twice and he had three children each from both marriages.
His first wife was Mary Stilwell. He married her in 1871. Mary was only 16 at the time they got married. She was an employee at one of Edison's shops. Together, they had three children.
Their first child, a daughter whom they named Marion Estelle Edison was born in 1873 and lived uptil 1965. She was followed by two sons: Thomas Alva Edison Jr. (1879-1935) and William Leslie Edison (1878-1937).
In February 1884, Mary died. Thomas Edison remarried two years later in 1886. His second wife was twenty year old Mina Miller. She bore him two daughters and a son. Their elder daughter was Madeleine Edison (1888-1979). After him came Charles Edison (1890-1969) and then Theodore Miller Edison (1898-1992).

When Edison was 39 he married his second wife, Mina Miller (20). They had three children together: Madeleine, Charles, and Theodore. Charles took over his father's business and later became the governor of New Jersey. Theodore was the only Edison child to acquire a college degree and went on to produce 80 patents. Mina lived for 16 years after Thomas' death. She died in 1947.
