In 1832, this area ceded from the Chickasaw Nation to the United States by the Treaty of Pontotoc and became part of the State of Mississippi. According to the treaty, the land was surveyed and offered for sale by the Federal Government. The Mississippi state legislature on February 9, 1836, established the counties of Itawamba, Tishomingo, Tippah, and Pontotoc along with other counties in the newly acquired land. These four counties shared a common corner at 34°30'31"N, 88°34'07"W
