Tippo Mississippi

This Cemetery indexed October 1997-by Nick Denley, Clerk of Chancery Court.

Needmore Cemetery is located at Tippo Mississippi. This is a short history of Tippo:


Tippo ,located nine miles southwest of Charleston was surveyed in 1833. Three men named, Body, Skinner and Crawford purchased land here in 1836, but there was not much of a settlement there for several years. By 1866 the population had grown enough to require the designation of a new Supervisor's Beat. This beat was called the River Beat and the east boundaries was described as "Up Tippo Bayou to Tillatoba Creek, and down that creek to the Tallahatchie River and up the Tallahatchie to the county line." It was said that the roads were so bad from this Beat to Charleston that it took a whole day on a horse or mule to make the trip one way. No one wanted the Supervisors job for this beat, but finally Green London,a Black Man took it and remained on the Board of Supervisors for many years.
