EARLEYVILLE is the name given to a very small, now non-existant town just outside of Kersey on Route 948 heading toward Ridgway. Today the only thing that marks it�s existance is the Earlyville Cemetery. This little village was laidout in 1865 by Dr. Charles Earley, who opened a coal seam here. P.W. Hays also had a general store in Earlyville. Thomas Copella operated the steam engine. He became a Major in World War I, married a Phillipine woman, and died in the Phillipines.
