Board of Police 1857-1862 Deaths
While looking through an Old Tishomingo County Board of Police book for 1857-1862, I discovered many people who died and were buried by the county. These people were listed as paupers or transients. Since ACGS is trying to compile a new cemetery book, I decided to list them. There is no way to know where in Old Tishomingo County these people were buried. Many times they didn't know a complete name. Some blacks are listed as only male or female. I have compiled this list exactly as found.
