Tippah County is located in the northeast corner of the state. It is bordered by Alcorn,
Benton, Union, and Prentiss Counties in Mississippi and Hardeman County, in Tennessee. Tippah County was established in February 9, 1836, and it is one of 10 counties created by the Chickasaw Cession. In 1870, the reconstructionist government divided the county. Parts that were once Tippah County now belong to Union, Prentiss, Benton, and Alcorn Counties. If you have information that you think would be beneficial to this page, please send it in.
