I think the mystery is that Dublin, Cherokee County, Alabama is the present day town of Leesburg. Also, that was the home of my great great grandfather Stephen Reed Hood who helped organize the Cherokee Beauregards in 1861. Once mustered in at Montgomery, the unit became Company D in the 22nd Alabama Infantry. S.R. Hood was elected the first Captain of Company D, but resigned in January 1862. He was the first minister of the Advent Christian Church in north Alabama and returned to his career in the ministry. His 18 year old son Private John S. Hood continued to serve in Company D and was seriously wounded in the Battle of Shiloh. He died of his wounds two months later and was buried in the Noxubee Cemetery near Macon, Mississippi.
