It seems plausible that Robert Armer/Armour served in the War of 1812, for which 2 draws were given to him in the Georgia Lottery of 1819. The Lottery of 1827, Robert Armour 1 draw. The 1830 Lottery was for 160 acres in the original Cherokee Territory which Hall County came out of. Robert drew District 7, 2nd Section.

He continued to acquire land in Hall County for there are records of nine transactions from 14 Apr 1825 to 23 Dec 1843 of his acquisitions. There were several deeds to set off one acre parcels to churches, one being the MethodistEpiscopal Church in 1848. He deeds land to his sons, John and Taylor, and after his death in 1855, his heirs sell off hundreds of acres of land.

His death occurred in April 1855 at the age of 83, but at the probation of the will it was declared that Robert Armour, deceased, was not of sound mind and memory, causing his will to be set aside. His eldest son, William, was appointed Administrator. Perhaps the land and slaves sold by his heirs after his death was to settle debts of his estate. No mention of his wife throughout the records.
