Ancestor of  David Reed

My great, great, grandfather was Silas Dobbs who served in the 63rd Georgia Heavy Artillery and guarded Savannah and Charleston during 1862 until Sherman invaded Georgia. The 63rd joined Johnston's Army of Tennessee at Kennesaw Mountain as an infantry regiment. Silas served throughout the war. He was born in Cherokee County and his mother was a Cherokee indian. Because their homeland was destroyed by Sherman's Army, Silas moved his family to Crooked Oak Mountain south of Tuscumbia, AL. His son James Wyley Dobbs married Tenie Jenie Green daughter of Marcus D. L. Green in the 1880s.
