Cedric was a small community in southeastern Randolph County, Alabama, United States. Today it is entirely under private ownership and is located 3–4 miles to the southeast of present-day Roanoke, and about one mile southeast of Bacon Level Church. Joseph Rushton, an early Alabama potter, lived near Cedric.[2] note-this location is nearby to the line between Randolph & Chambers Counties, Alabama, but is in Randolph.

With many other potters at nearby Bacon Level, this community also had well known potter Joseph Rushton, buried at Rushton family cemetery here along with his wife, Martha J Rushton (1821-1891).
