Troy

The first white settlement in Tishomingo County was Troy on the Old Reynoldsburg Road near the Tuscumbia River. As the settlement grew, the name was changed to Danville. Early settlers were Brody’s, Liddens, Mitchells, Fowlers, A.B. Dilworth and others. Mr. Dilworth was the secretary of the state, 1855-1860.

Federal troops destroyed this settlement during the Civil War.
