On Earl Cefalu place, Ward 5, St. Helena Parish.
The community that came to be known as Georgeville, Louisiana (though it no longer exists as such) was named for a pioneering family of the area, that of John George (born in Overwharton, VA in 1747 and died in 1823 in Georgeville) and his wife Sarah Frances (Sally) Freeman (born in 1756 in Amelia, VA and died about 1835 in Georgeville). They migrated to Louisiana about 1800, settling on lands granted by Spain, then in control of "West Florida," along the east side of the Tickfaw River. The ancient live oak trees in the cemetery were planted by John George.
