Cedric is a ghost town in northeastern Chambers County, Alabama. Today it is entirely in private ownership. It is located 3–4 miles to the southeast of present-day Roanoke, and about 1 mile southwest of Bacon Level Church. Joseph Rushton (and his wife Martha lorance) an early Alabama potter, lived near Cedric.[2]

Pottery industry[edit]

While nearby Bacon Level had several well known potters, Cedric's Joseph Rushton was part of their community as well.[3]
