I met Toussaint early on in my research, when I came in contact with my dad's elderly cousin still living in Colorado. Cousin Percy was a Dobbins, and because he stayed in Colorado which was, from 1875 on, home turf of the Dobbins family, he had become the repository of wonderful Dobbins things. Percy was also a generous and helpful person, and one of the first things he sent me was a copy of a Note (above) written by the Territory of Kansas to Toussaint Lahay. Percy said that Toussaint was the first husband of Nannie Corel Lahay, Percy's grandmother.
