St. Mark M.B. Church Cemetery



Macel was located on the banks of Tippo Bayou seven miles east of Charleston. Macel was named for Macel Willingham She was the daughter of the man who owned the land when the town was built. Prior to the arrival of the railroad Macel was an isolated section consisting of heavily timbered land. The railroad opened avenues of business when the timber was cut and shipped. After the timber was cut and sold the settlers turned the farming as additional acreage was opened for cultivation. The Government first surveyed the land for the township in 1841. Land sales were made in 1853 until 1856. The first settlers to purchase land were, E.S. Watson, Nelson Evans, O.M. Coswick, Henry Thomas and .C. Ledbetter.


Tippo is 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 Ittilatoba 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 Beatbto 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. Located at Tippo-macel
