Roberts Family, Clay County Al.

This is a photo of the Roberts family [I am assuming]
I have been told that the man and woman on the left hand side are John Monsula Buchanan "Bud" Roberts
and his wife Laura East. I also think that the man on the right hand side with the white shirt and tie
is my grandfather, John Willis Robertson, son of William Robertson and Elizabeth Pursley, and to his left,
[standing behind the boy and girl] the woman with the white blouse with trim around the collar is
Lela Bell Roberts, wife of John Willis Robertson, and daughter of "Bud" Roberts and Laura East
If this is a Roberts family photo, it would have to have been taken before 1901.
One of the other men would probably be Joseph Redie Roberts and his wife Georga Ann Missouri Knight.
I would love to have some positive identification of the people in this photo, and where the photo was taken.
If anyone can help me with this photo it will be greatly appreciated.
This is another of those unidentified photos with no description on the back that ended up in
so many women's trunks, that leave us wondering.
