|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Brister Cemetery is located in the northwestern part of Attala County, MS. North on highway 35 from Kosciusko, turn left (west) at Hesterville. The cemetery is just off Highway 440. The cemetery was originally established as a Brister family Cemetery by Edmond Brister on his property. At some subsequent point in time it became a public cemetery. The cemetery dates back to about the 1845-1847 time frame when Edmond Brister's first wife, Matilda Holland (Norman) Brister passed away and was buried.
