This Unidentified Cemetery is just south of Kosciusko. It is located on Highway 14 just a short distance west of the junction with Highway 43. It is on the north side of the highway up on a hill with just a narrow path created by tire tracks that end at a cable stretched between two poles. No other entrance could be discerned, however, there must be some other way to access the cemetery. As you can see from the pictures, a good portion of the cemetery is on a slope.

UPDATE:  David Frazier, the former County Coordinator of the Attala County Genealogy web site has indicated that he believes this cemetery is the Bullock Cemetery.  He also offers that the Bullock Cemetery is not listed in the Attala County Cemetery book.

James Jenkins also responded and confirms that the 'Unidentified Cemetery is most likely the Bullock Cemetery and he sent along a map to illustrate the point. You will find a link that you can click below if you wish to view the map. Oh, incidentally, the Bullock Cemetery is an African American cemetery and none of the Black cemeteries appear in the 'Attala County Cemetery' book.
