W. P. A. History of Pontotoc County, Mississippi


OAKHILL is situated northeast of Pontotoc on the Pontotoc-Sherman Highway.  A Baptist church was organized there in the 1840s when the community was settled, and some of the first families were:  The Pitts, McCoys, Dillards, Leavells, Cranes, Pritchards, Gambrells, and the Milams.  Oak Hill, like other communities in this section of the county, attracted South Carolinians whose ruling passion was churches and schools.
