 Did Major John André Whip William Russell in Sagaponack? (Dan's Papers, 12/3/16). Article describing how the original marker, with wording identical to the current version, disappeared and was replaced with a version that juxtaposed the names of the two persons involved, which was then sometime later replaced with the current, correct version. Unfortunately , the article provides little additional information regarding the event. (Submitted on December 8, 2017.)
