Tipton County Information
Tipton County was founded October 29, 1823.
It was named in honor of Jacob Tipton who lead a company for defense of the Northern Territory against the Indians and who was killed while leading an attack on Nov. 4, 1791. The county was formed from parts of Shelby County, which borders Tipton County in the south.
The land was former Chickasaw Indian territory.
This area was part of the cotton culture associated with the Mississippi Delta, that extended down to the Yazoo River in Mississippi.
Two Civil War forts, Fort Randolph and Fort Wright, were built near the community of Randolph because of its strategic location on the second Chickasaw Bluff of the Mississippi River.
The County Seat is Covington
