This cemetery is literally all that is left of the town of Centerville, Talbot County, Georgia.Our ancestors – the Edwards and Alsobrooks – lived here. Willis Edwards moved to the area in the early 1840s, coming first from Oglethorpe County near the South Carolina border, stopping for a while in the Macon area and ultimately settling in Centerville in the early 1840s. His son Marion was a jug maker and married Mary Alsobrook, daughter of Asa Alsobrook. Their son, James Monroe Edwards, was my great grandfather on my mother’s side.
