John Fortunatus Sydnor was born about 1783 to Epaphroditus Sydnor and Milly Ball. He was a farmer in Richmond county. John is thought to have married as many as three times to Margaret Brent, Nancy Green and Elizabeth Mosby. According to The Sydnor Family Saga John and his first wife had no children. Nancy Sydnor was the only child of John and Nancy Green. Nancy Green died before November 14th, 1814 when John remarried for the third time. He had at least five children with Elizabth Mosby. The 1840 census lists John Sydnor, age 50-59 with a wife 40-49, son 10-14 and daughter 10-14. The Mortality Schedule attached to the 1850 census shows that John Sydnor age 66, a farmer in Richmond county, died of "chronic" in December 1849. He was listed as ill for 15 days.

When John's sister, Milly, died without heirs in 1867 a court document listed her living brother and the living children and grandchildren of her deceased brothers and sister.
