        Nothing but the circumstances of privation which surround the situation of the widow and children of my deceased father, the late Colonel Robert Henry Dyer without any individual ability on my part to relieve their embarrassments could induce me at this, or any other time, to present myself to the public as the Manager of a Lottery. This, however, is the resource which the General Assembly, in its liberality, has placed in my hands as a means of relieving my father's family from being reduced to want, and of discharging a debt, which his estate is justly owing. To pay this debt, and all his other debts honorably, was among the last injunctions imposed by my deceased parent upon me as his only son.
          It is generally known that throughout the late war, from its commencement to its termination, my father discharged his duty in the public service as became a soldier and a man. It neither becomes me in this or in any other place, to boast of, or to reiterate his services. It is proper, however to state, that they were performed at the sacrifice of fortune and health. His loss of time and money, in the public service, connected with numerous pecuniary obligations incurred for others before and after that time, and which he was, during his life, compelled to discharge, left him at the time of his death, greatly embarrassed in his circumstances. To discharge the debt due to the state, above alluded to, would now require the sale and sacrifice of every article of property, real and personal, of which he died possessed. In this state of things, and for the purpose of securing his widow and infant orphans in the possession of a small home, the scheme of the Grand State Lottery class first, is now presented to the public. For myself, my time, my services, and personal responsibility, together with that of the most sufficient sureties who have generously agreed to stand by me, is freely given without the expectation of any personal or individual profit from the undertaking. Under these circumstances, the scheme is submitted to the friends, the former companions in arms, of the deceased, and to the liberal minded citizens of this State generally, as well as is the generous citizens of Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Louisiana, and other States, to whom the character and services of the late Colonel Dyer are not wholly unknown.

Departed this life on Thursday, the 11th instant, at his residence in this county, after a short illness, Colonel ROBERT H. DYER, a distinguished hero in the service of his country, under Gen-Jackson, during the late war. Few men commanded more the respect and esteem of an extensive acquaintance in private life and none ever deserved better of his country as a soldier. He served in all the memorable campaigns under Gen. Jackson, down to the termination of hostilities at the celebrated battle of New Orleans. He was brave, intrepid and ever foremost in battle, paved the way to victory, The memory of such a man deserves more than a passing notice, We shall be pleased hereafter to obtain and present to our readers, a biographical sketch of our much lamented and departed friend. A numerous family deplore his loss. His remains were interred at his late residence, on yesterday, with military honors.


PRIVATE ACTS OF TENNESSEE, 1832 (Nashville, Tenn., 1832), pages 53-54:


An Act for the relief of the heirs of Robert H. Dyer, deceased.

Whereas, it is represented to this General Assembly, that the late Col. Robert H. Dyer, of Madison county,


(Page 16)

died in the year 1826, indebted to the State of Tennessee, in the sum of three thousand dollars, and that the executor for the payment of the same, gave a deed in trust on the whole of the estate of the said Robert H. Dyer, excepting what was consumed in the payment of individual debts, amounting to about a sufficiency to pay this debt, and that the collection of this debt would deprive the widow and several daughters, of the means of support, and take from them almost all the comforts of life: Therefore,
        SECTION 1. Be enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, That Joel Henry Dyer, executor of the last will and testament of the said Robert H. Dyer, deceased, be, and he is hereby, authorized to prepare and draft a scheme of a Lottery in any manner he may think best, in order to raise the sum of six thousand dollars, for the benefit of the heirs of the said Robert H. Dyer, to be applied to the payment of the expenses of drawing this Lottery, and of the debt, interest and cost now owing by said executor of the said Robert H. Dyer, to the State of Tennessee.
        SEC. 2. Be it enacted, That before the said Joel H. Dyer proceed with said Lottery, he shall enter into bond with sufficient security in the sum of twelve thousand dollars, payable to the Governor and his successors in office, conditioned for the faithful payment of all prizes when drawn, or in case of failure to draw said Lottery, for the repayment to such persons as may have purchased tickets, of the sum by them advanced, which bond when executed, shall be filed in the office of the Secretary of State, and upon breach of which, suit may be brought to recover for the use of any person or persons aggrieved, from time to time, until the penalty be paid.
        SEC. 3. Be it further enacted, That the said Lottery be drawn and completed in the space of three years, from the first day or January 1834, and that the collection of the said debt, be, and the same is hereby, suspended for the period or three years, from the said first day of Jan. 1831: Provided, nothing in this act shall be so construed as to affect a lien given on certain [property] by the executor of the said Robert H. Dyer, deceased, to secure the payment of the above mentioned debt.
        SEC. 4. Be it enacted, That the said Joel Henry Dyer, is hereby authorized and empowered, (if in his opinion it would be most beneficial to the estate,) to sell the right of drawing this Lottery to any person or persons, he first taking bond and security from such person or persons to pay the prizes, and also such part or portion of the money as he by his contract with said person or persons may be entitled to: Provided, that nothing in this act contained shall authorize more than two classes to be drawn in said Lottery.


Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Speaker of the Senate.

Passed November 11, 1833.


ROBERT HENRY DYER was born in North Carolina, one of the children of JOEL DYER and his wife, SOPHIA DYER; the family moved to east Tennessee when he was eight years old; he had a lively record as a volunteer soldier (lieutenant-colonel, wounded in November 1814) in the War of 1812; eventually moved to west Tennessee, Dyer County, and in 1824 to Madison County, Tennessee where he lived about ten miles north of Jackson, Tennessee, on a 275 acre farm off the middle fork of the Forked Deer River, just north of present day Oakfield, where he died May 11, 1826 and where he was buried. (Most of biographical information, above, came from the JACKSON GAZETTE, May 28, 1825 and May 13, 1826]

Colonel DYER had been loaned $3000 from the State of Tennessee to create a canal from the mouth of the north fork of the Forked Deer River, southwest of present-day Dyersburg, Tennessee to the Mississippi River (1825). He had a warehouse situated beside the Mississippi River where the north fork flowed into the greater river. He died before he could develop this canal and his estate was held accountable for the repayment of the loan. The state allowed his executor to hold a state-wide lottery as a means of raising money to pay the debt but as there were several other lotteries held at the same time, this lottery failed.

Williamson County, Ten. Aug. 22, 1834.

I attended the examination of the pupils of the Porter Female Academy, on the 16th inst., which is under the superintendence of Mr. and Mrs. Ellis and daughter; I was well pleased with the manner in which the examination was conducted. The young ladies, in the presence of a large audience satisfactorily evinced that they had been educated with great care and attention, by answering and expounding with much readiness, all questions that were propounded to them, in the various branches of learning upon which they were examined, and thereby acquitted themselves with much credit and reflected, an honor upon their teachers. In concluding the examination, we were charmed and delighted with the performance on the Piano Forte, by the young ladies who had been acquiring a knowledge of the art under the instruction of Miss Ellis. We had also exhibited to our view, suspended upon the wall of the room, various productions of needle work exemplifying and displaying much taste, neatness and skill in those branches of education.

Preceptor in the Hardeman Academy.
