    I just did a major search on Pilot Hill and found little to nothing. The only thing I saw was a reference to Salem, AK. up by highway 395 in the industrial area. There wasn't even anything on google earth about it. Hopefully someone else will chime in on this one. Best of luck!

    I live close to the town of Salem Arkansas and Don Winslow of California is correct in directing you to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas.net. Good luck in your hunt. There is another town in Fulton County called Pilot which is also in the Arkansas hills.

    Default PIlot Hill, AR

    I, too, had family living near Pilot Hill, AR (per the 1850 census). Some of that family is buried at a cemetery called Kerby-Mansfield. I have never been there. `A cousin tells me that it is is about 1.5 miles N of Camp, AR on SR 9 at least a quarter of a mile off the road in a field. It is on private property. There are about 9 known graves and several unmarked graves "in the woods beyond the fence". Apparently a former owner destroyed part of the cemetery. There is a cemetery called the Whiteside cemetery closer to the state line that is also in this area (8 known burials). My mother speaks of another cemetery called Moten that is near Mammoth Springs. Hope this helps.
