This cemetery is locted at Tutwiler. We have been able to find some histories of some of the towns and have included those histories with the Cemeteries.

Tutwiler, Miss.

In 1899 Tom Tutwiler, a Civil Engineer for the railroad made his headquarters seven miles northeast of Sumner. The town of Tutwiler was founded and named for him. When the railroad was built the first depot erected was a two story building and the town was given the top floor for a school. Captain H.B. Fitch built and operated the first store. His wife took charge of the school which begun with five pupils.
In 1905 the town was incorporated and W.E. Fite was Mayor and J.O. Clay as depot agent. In 1900 the Illinois Central Railroad running from Yazoo City to Lambert, crossed at Tutwiler the company built a railroad yard there. In 1928 a high school was built at a cost of $40,000. The town grew rapidly until 1929 when the railroad yard was moved to Clarksdale. At that time the population and business began to decline. The population in 1929 before the railroad yard was moved was 1,010 people.

Indexed by Nick Denley November 1997, Clerk of Chancery Court Tallahatchie County Mississippi. Every Effort has been made to make this Cemetery as accurate as possible.
