The article in question is Evelyn Sidman Wachter, "Lieutenant George
Sydenham," TAG 45 (Oct. 1969): 195-201. It does indeed make it likely
that there are descendants of this man (not including the author, who
had different ancestry), but the research is more suggestive than
conclusive. The following is the last sentence of the article:
"Following the completion of the research on this article, a partial
account of George Sydenham was found in the _Collections of the N.-Y.
Historical Society, Court of Judicature of the Province of New York_,
79:99," a work I do not have.
