You are allowed to make POSTs too.

Please bring my monologue to an end. Those of you who received invitations can Post to the log. Just log-in (top right corner).

If you make a boo-boo, you can easily correct it. I have made spelling and grammar errors, and corrected them. There is a spell checker too. After any post you make, there is a pencil icon that only the author can see, by clicking it the author I can correct himself.

Making a Post is just as easy as writing an email.

Comments are easy also, but please make some Posts.

The Sanchez Sisters

I came across this story about Sanchez women in the Civil War. This story may be a little off the topic since these sisters are descendants of Francisco Xavier Sanchez' brother, Jose Sanchez de Ortigosa.

The story has a few errors, but Lola Sanchez is known as a Confederate spy. []

My notes give their father's name as Mauricio del Carmen Sanchez (AKA: Maurice Sanchez) born in St. Augustine in 1799, and their mother as Maria Marquilla Oliveros. Their brother Manuel R. Sanchez served in the Confederate Army wounded, captured twice and received a Confederate pension. Many of these people are buried at St. Ambrose's Cemetery in Elkton, FL.

Does anyone have more Sanchez Stories to tell?
