SWAMP GROVE M.B. CHURCH CEMETERY

Philipp, Mississippi

PHILIPP

Located six miles Southwest of Macel. Philipp is situated in the neck of the bend on the South side of the Tallahatchie River. It is only two miles across the neck to the river again. In this bend is a large acreage of land. J.L. Townes bought and developed five plantations; Beulah, Moss, Palo, Alto, The Bend and Omega.
In the late 1880's representatives of the Schlitz Brewing Company of Milwaukee Wisconsin were in search of fine long staves for building casks that were to be shipped to France. They found the wood they needed in the forest where Philipp now stands. They organized the Delta Cooperage Co., put in mills and laid the first railroad as a logging road in the woods near there in 1888. The Railroad was built through there in 1888-1890. The site was made a station and the Wisconsin people named it for their Governor.

Indexed by Nick Denley, Clerk of Chancery Court Tallahatchie County Mississippi.
