The maps above confused members of the RLDS Church.
They were based on H.A. Stebbins'  Book of Mormon lectures of 1894.

H.A Stebbins then wrote an article in the RLDS Saints' Herald changing his mind about the location of the Hill Cumorah suggesting it was in Central America.

You can download H.A. Stebbins' 1911 article at this link in .pdf format.

L.E. Hills created the maps below with the "original" Hill Cumorah in Mexico
in an attempt to solve the problem.

His idea and maps were rejected by the Leadership of the RLDS Church.
L.E. Hills published his maps and books COPYRIGHTED under his name.

His copyrights have long expired.
L.E. Hills’ books and maps are now in the Public Domain.
Anyone can republish and resell his books and maps.
