Well, will Syrach's baptism record do as "proof" of his parents?
Baptism record for Syrach at the Flatbush Dutch Reformed Church listed as
Date Father Mother Child
1679 Dec 28; Titus Sirachsz, Jannetje Teunis; Sjak; (sponsor) Hendrika
Don't mind the spelling--Dutch loses something in the translation....
And yes, he did have a daughter Jannetje (Jane) married to Matthew Skene
(one of the many variant spellings on that one)
When Matthew died, she was the Administratrix of his will in Augusta Co VA:
"Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia, 1745-1800.
Extracted from the Original Court Records of Augusta County" by Lyman
Date: Feb 15, 1748
Location: Augusta Co., VA
Book Page: WB1-97
Jane Skaine's bond as administratrix of Mathew Skaine.
