Russellville


Last Saturday, Hub and I attended a monthly music show  called "Rockin' at the Roxy".  It is at the old Roxy Theater in Russellville, Alabama, a small town about twenty miles south of Florence.  The show starred my favorite local group, the KGB, and it was fantastic, as always.  We got there a little bit early, and looked around town.  We found this lovely old cemetery.








I haven't been able to find much information about the cemetery.  I have never seen stones like this, and I think there must be a good story about how it was built.  I going to go back with my sister-in-law, who spends much of her time 'looking for dead people' and has a vast knowledge of cemeteries.  

The Sadler cemetery is a great example of how our burial customs have changed in the last century.
