Message:What a great idea. It is so important for us to remember our heritage and to be able to educate our children on the history of our wonderful community. Being a picture fanatic, I especially enjoyed seeing these. They not only show the hardships our forefathers endured, but also the joy of working together to accomplish great task.

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

I hope to be able to contribute more information on the Wigstrom family and Silverhill. Children of Oscar and Adele were: Earnest, Adolf, Martha and Oliver. 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.
