Tocobago and the de Soto expedition[edit]

I removed the statement that the Tocobago had contact with Hernando de Soto. "The de Soto expedition ... failed to encounter the Tocobago Indians, ...". [Jerald T. Milanich. (1995.) Florida Indians and the Invasion from Europe. Gainesville, Florida: University of Florida Press. P. 73.] Moreover, the chroniclers of both the Narvaez and the de Soto expeditions did not mention Tocobago by name. The name "Tocobago" does not appear in Spanish documents until the visit by Menéndez de Avilés in 1567.[John H. Hann. (2003.) Indians of Central and South Florida 1513-1763. Gainesville, Florida: University of Florida Press. P. 105.] -- Donald Albury 00:20, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
