Dyer County, located in west Tennessee, was created on 16 October 1823 from the Western District and was named in honor of Colonel Henry Dyer. In 1835, the Tennessee State Legislature ordered all counties to divide their boundaries into eight or more civil districts and give a written description of these and draw a map without professional help showing these districts. From this point, elections, taxes, school, justice of the peace could all be handled in a more local manner. It also helps the genealogist to locate an ancestor into a small geographical area than just a “county”.

Example from this volume:

“District Number 4 Tax List
Aletand, Aquilla - 500 acres
Armstrong, Martin - 5000 acres
Branch, Joseph - 100 acres ...etc...
