Many of Attala County cemeteries, like others around the country, are often named for the family buried there. Cemeteries of long ago seem to have been located on the family's land or as part of a church's property and finding the graves of one's ancestors in Attala County depends on the answers to these two questions:
What was the family name?
Where did they attend church?
If you have the answers to both questions, you may be off to a good start. And the wonderful thing about these family cemeteries is that once you have found one ancestor, you are likely to find others buried in that same cemetery.
