The Toombses and the Catletts intermarried--Sen. Toombs's father was married three times, and Robert Augustus was a result of his father's third marriage, to Catharine Huling. But his father's second marriage was to Sarah Catlett from Culpeper County, Virginia; they had a son, Robert's half-brother Lawrence Catlett Toombs, who married Harriet DuBose--another family with close blood ties to the Toombses.

I believe there are yet more Toombs/Catlett links, but I'm at work and can't really check right now. It shouldn't take too much digging, though, to start finding the connections.
