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 .ON THE ROUBDIOUX but there still PARKER, CANTRELL, COLVERT ect the further I get away from the first grand parents layer of the family.. 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 of the ones I knew of. I stumbled across find a I decided to see how many were listed or had photographs and my surch showed me NADA, ZERO ,ZILCH, NUTHING so i decided i add my stone photos here OF MY KNOWN RELATIVES . I LIKE BEING HELPFUL WHEN AND WHERE I CAN .I do have my heart in the right place even though I do not all ways the the outcome I aim for but I still try just to see if I can What do you think when you pass a cemetery ???? Have you ever driven past cemetery before and never wondered how many there have been forgotten or no one knows they are there ,I have . 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 .Ifeal like I am giving back a little bit every time I help others find what they are looking for and YES I HAVE NEVER ASKED FOR MONEY WHILE DOING IT .I HAVE FOUND THAT BEING ABLE TO GO TO A CEMETERY AND LOOKING and WALKING AROUND IS PEACEFULL TO ME AND RELAXING .A DESTRESSOR,its the break I need away from business and my family its MY TIME PEACEFULL TO ME .. 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 . 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 ...

Wylie Hilliard photo request
Hi Russell,
Thank you so much for your time in trying to fulfill our photo request regarding Wylie Hilliard.

We appreciate your time in trying to locate his burial. I am not sure why he has an memorial in that cemetery if not buried there.

Thank you,
Paul,Jr & Karen Hudson

Ref: Williams in Valhalla Cemetery
Hi Russell, I just called the cemetery and the lady working there tells me they have no records of them there. She did say the Cemetery had been bought out and perhaps the records were misplaced.
Johnny L. Williams created the memorials on Find A Grave, I will have him go there and check it out. Thanks for your help.

Williams Photos
Russell I want to thank you for all the photo you did, I greatly appreciate them.
One question, are you near Valhalla cemetery, Midfield, Jefferson County? If so, could you do John Jefferson Williams Jr, 1934-1988 #142819490? And his Mother Lydia Bell Walden Williams 1907-1993, #142819094? You just did his father Sunday, in Cedar Hill. They are both Johnny L. Williams and my relatives. We would greatly appreciate it.

RE: genery gap cemetery
No problem. Glad it got resolved.

Just want to mention that I appreciate the photos you've taken at Highland Memorial Gardens. That's such a large cemetery to document. My in-laws are buried there, so I took some pictures last year, but then got sidetracked to Elmwood, which also has a lot of unphotographed gravesites. Thanks for all the work you do.
