Message:Hello, I grew up in Robertsdale and spent my
formative years in R'dale and of course S'hill. The quiet,
peaceful, loving area and its people, are part of my DAILY thoughts even
though I moved from that area in 1974. Chattanooga is wonderful, but you
folks are Blessed beyond measure to still be there in the middle of
Baldwin County. I got saved at Silverhill First Baptist, dated every
Silverhill girl that I could and spent years jumping and kicking with Bob
Kucera at what was former known as Silverhill Karate Club. I was with Bob
when he started in the old sanctuary at the S'hill Covenant Church,
then we moved out of town and for years trained at the Hunky Hall before
it was moved to the S'hill school. I even took piano lessons from the
dear ol' saint Louise Lumberg who used to live beside the Silverhill
Community Grocery Store. Her love for children and music, her tender
heart, and the history she would tell about the founding of Silverhill
made her a legend in that area. In my humble opinion, the Sweds, Cheks,
and Bohunks, with their love of God and land, and their gentle nature,
made Silverhill one of the greatest places on earth to live. I miss it
dearly to this day. If you see Bob Kucera, please tell him Dennis Terry
says "Hello" Thanks- Dennis Terry

My mother, Mildred Donham, taught at Silverhill Elementary School from
1930-31. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Elsie Chandler in this
past week on a trip to Alabama. What a thrill it was when she recognized
herself in one of the photographs we brought with us on the trip. Thank
you for all the wonderful information in this website.

On behalf of my grandparents, Oscar Ludwig and Adele W. Wigstrom who were
some of the first immigrants from Sweden who came to Silverhill around
1906 and raised their family I thank you for this web site and your hard
work in documenting everything.
I hope to be able to contribute more information on the Wigstrom family
Children of Oscar and Adele were:

Much of this web site is special to me since I grew up in Silverhill and
I remember many things mentioned that you have documented.
