I have not found any information that stated Tobias was an American Indian. He possibly came from Ireland/Scotland with a brother. The last documentation ( I have found) Tobias died sometime after 1824 when he was living in Fentress Co.Tn. His name has been also seen in Jackson Co.Tn.& Overton Co.Tn as well as Cumberland Co.,Ky. My ancestor is thur his daughter, Mahala Moredock Roberts( husband was Jesse) Born 1812.
