My mother, Viola Behne Dechow

My mother, Viola Behne Dechow was born in 1915 a short distance from Sugar Loaf along Townline Road. She always referred to the hill as Sugar Loaf and would walk around it on her way to Shetland School. I think the local use of the name much predates the land records from the 1960s.
