Los Floridanos Heritage Plaque

This email arrived today, May 17th:

The Los Floridanos Historical Society cordially invites all members to attend the dedication of the Los Floridanos Heritage Plaque. The event, sponsored by the City of St. Augustine and hosted by the Los Floridanos Society, is part of the City's historical marker program.

The dedication ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 29, 2010, at 10:30am on the Northeast corner of Cordova and Orange Streets on the grounds of the visitor Center and City Parking Garage Complex. The plaque honors the historical heritage of the descendants of the first Spanish settlers, the Los Floridanos, who were sent to colonize "La Florida".

A reception will follow the dedication at the A1A Ale House on the Bayfront. Please let me know if you plan to attend the dedication and reception. Thanks.
The email came from Thomas T. Rogero

New Info on Alexander Bonaparte Sanchez' Descendants

Some of you may have notice an additional listing in the Bibliographies and Descendant Charts . . . section in the right-hand column. That would be item: 7. Alexander Bonaparte Sanchez, Jr.'s Descendants.

Cousin, Ed Whitehead has contributed this information. It brings this part of the family tree up-to-date.

Please add any comments or corrections or email directly to Ed.

Is this St. Augustine Sanchez one of our family?

Recently, there was a posting on another blog, My Florida History, that featured the Rodriguez-Avero-Sanchez House at 52 St. George Street in St. Augustine

But who is this Juan Sanchez who died in 1801? He isn't in the records that I have collected. Is he from another Sanchez family?

Please comment. Correct me if I am wrong.
