Welcome to Tipton County, TN!

I am Sherri Onorati, coordinator for the Friends of the Tipton County Public Library’s Tipton County genealogy website. If your family hails from Tipton County, Tenn., the Friends invite you to explore our website and perhaps discover a bit of family history amongst its pages. Please email me if you have any suggestions or contributions you would like to make to our pages.

Tipton County was originally Chicksaw land and was created by an act of the Tennessee legislature on October 29, 1823, from land taken from Shelby County in the “(south) Western District of Tennessee,” and included what is now Lauderdale County. The county seat of Tipton County is the city of Covington, with a population of about 9,500.

I hope you find our efforts helpful in your search for your Tipton County roots.
