Jacob Leonard family Huguenot papers

Jacob Leonard b 30 Jan 1713 New York, New York and d 3 Nov 1801, buried Trinity Episcopal Church Cemetery. The family story is that the first Jacob Leonard in America was a descendant of a Huguenot family who escaped France during St. Bartholomew's massacre in 1572 and settled in Margate, England. Jacob Leonard was a shipbuilder who came to America in his own ship. The fourth Jacob Leonard (b 22 Jan 1777 in New York City) married Catherine Gould and had 10 children. The third child Catherine Gould Leonard married James Hall and moved to Baltimore, Maryland, taking with her the "Huguenot papers." We are told that her daughter Helen Marr Hall who married Charles H. Macy in 1856 had those papers.

Are there any descendants of Helen Hall Macy who might still have the Leonard "Huguenot papers?"
