Not sure what you're asking here in the second sentence.  Hybridizers often use several siblings from a cross in further crosses.  Sometimes they introduce the ones used for the cross and sometimes they introduce something else from that cross.  Other times, nothing. 
Some hybridizers only cross on new seedlings to further the line/lines.  As a rule, they have quit using a seedling in crosses long before it is introduced.  Some are never introduced due to some perceived fault. 
If you've access to the online register, put 'H83 AND Blyth' into the search.  You will pull up the children that have been introduced from (Temple of Time X Louisa's Song.)  Or will be introduced.  This should include 6 children and 1 grand child.
