(Enlarge) The town of Brookhaven was originally settled in 1818 by Samuel Jayne who migrated from New York State with his brothers, Brewster and Anselm, one year after Mississippi was granted statehood.Samuel Jayne was originally from the town of Brookhaven on Long Island, New York, and legend has it, the naming of the town was to honor his former home.Samuel Jayne established a trading post called "Old Brook" (Image), 2, 3, 4 which was a mile southeast of the present city of Brookhaven where the Bogue Chitto River and an old Choctaw Indian trail met, which consisted of a gristmill and a small store.
Bull, who had moved to the area in 1824, sold 160 acres to Jayne, who in 1833 established the mill and a post office.
Historical records have confirmed that the location of the post office was the origin of pre-railroad Brookhaven, where a marker has been erected, 2 at the corner of Dale and First Street South (Old Hwy 51).
The territory on which Brookhaven was founded was originally Choctaw Indian land.
The Choctaws ceded it to the United States government in 1805 in the Treaty of Mount Dexter.
This established the 13 counties of Covington, Davis, Forrest, Greene, Jefferson, Jones, Lamar, Lawrence, Lincoln, Marion, Perry, Pike, Walthall and Wayne.
