Shlama Akhi Keith,

Because of the presence of the masculine 3rd-person singular forms of verbs (e.g., "descended" in v.2 of Matthew, "sitting" in v.5 of Mark) and 3rd-person singular possessives (e.g., "his clothes" in v.3 of Matthew) it wouldn't be possible to read plurality in Matthew's or Mark's account.

Sometimes the "Syame" thing comes into play when there are no other *clues* in the phrase. It is in these rare instances where we see examples of Polysemy in the Greek families of text, since it was anyone's guess what was originally meant by the author.

Unfortunately, these aren't examples of that because there are clues in the phrase to let us know that the subject was singular.
