Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got involved with my family tree in 2000.i have been working on family members here in Alabama .My great grandfather was born in Potosi MO .Firman leander {lee} his father firman francis and his father john james were laid to rest some where in Missouri. i have found firman leander and have been able to prove where the relatives all are in Alabama .. It wasn,t untill i got involved , there was no photo history of where their final resting paces were . I a few years back took photos . i stumbles across find a grave and and my surch showed me nuthin so i decided i add my stone photos here . I driven past cemetery before and never wondered how many there have been forgotten or no one knows there there. I get so agrivated when i find a grave in the over growth , woods, under over growth grass, the worse is burried under the ground and it has increption on it says love or LOST OR GONE BUT NOT FORGOTEN. I know i do not have alot free time since i do work a full time job, involved in sons life, family, car club and still try have time for me . I do what i can , when i can , if i find a grave for you i tried hard to get you the answers , if i can,t then i can,t . What ever i post i will share if it is in find a grave guide lines ,, just ask if it,s a photo request or if you can prove family line then if it one i have set up i will transfer it to you be it in the guide lines of find a grave .I HAVE MADE GRID BOOKS OF VALHALLA,CEDAR HILL,HIGHLAND and have been in process documenting in currently 15 cemeterys.. I hope thru all my running around and efforts may some day be recongized,if just one photo or one name documented BY ME .I hope it helps someone to find the truth and the history of the family or indivual ... i dont know what else to say thanks Russell Roubdioux,Bessemer Alabama ..PS IF YOU CAN FIND THE SECTION LOT AND PLOT OF CEDAR HILL, HIGHLAND, VALHALLA BY CALLING THEIR OFFICES ... I CAN GET THEM COMPLETED MUCH FASTER. .FYI I NO LONGER HAVE FREE ACCESS TO VALHALLA RECORED THEY NOW CHARGE FOR THAT INFOIF YOUR A NON MEMBER OR volunteer of FAG try to get the section and lot I will go photo it from my grid book ....many other places like lincolin,pinehill,brighton,mason, ect IN THE AREA .....They have no office and no one to ask just a big surch for how ever long it takes..

I have gotten all the photos you added for my PADENs - thank you, thank you, thank you. I will go and complete their memorials now and add the Wm A. PADEN; 1926-1995 that I hope you took the photo of also and will add with his upcoming memorial. Will add him immediately.

Many thanks for your sincere kindness,

RE: Cedar Hill
Oh Russell, I thought you had taken all the photos of the PADENS but didn't post them since they were not on findagrave. If there are more PADENS in the area take them all and I will see if I can fit them in! But I hate for you to go back since you went the first time. I just didn't know the other family members were there also!

No rush at all, just when you pass by again.

Many, many thanks for your kindness,

I have added the other PADENS and connected as I could. Let me know when you have the photos added and I will go and look for them. Do you want me to go and request photos for each one of them? I can if you rather have it that way.

Many thanks,

Hi Russell, I explored your photo again and noticed you mentioned all the PADENs around that one large family marker. I need all of those - they are all wives or cousins. I am hoping you have taken all the photos so can send them to me directly OR I will add their names to Cedar Hill and you can add the photos.

Oh I hope you took them all.

Many thanks again,

Thank you, thank you, thank you sooooo much for the PADEN photos. I appreciate it so much. Was wondering if there were any other PADENs near? I do not know where their wives were buried and noticed it looked like more than just 3 markers by the big PADEN marker. Any help would be so appreciated if you remember.

Sincere thanks for your kindness,
Dianne, San Diego Co, CA volunteer
