Yes, it is the same man. Roman Bernardo Sanchez of Alachua County, Florida, migrated to California following the Mexican-American War. He located in San Francisco, where he married Laura C. Crittenden, daughter of Alexander Parker Crittenden. The Crittendens, the Robinsons, the Sanchezes, the Mercados, the Van Wycks are all related. One of the central pioneering families of northern California, the Gold Rush, and the Comstock Lode of Nevada.
