Thank you for the information about Myers Mill,aka Mundis Mill. My grandfather took grain there before it closed in 1977.
My great grandfather's farm was one of those raided by the Tigers in 1863. It lay across the RR tracks on Woodland View Drive. The house and barn were built in 1830, survived the raid, but couldn't survive the recent developers wrath. I have pictures of this wonderful brick house with double front porch, Federal-style dormers. It was 8 bays wide.
The aftermath of the Tiger's raid left the previous owners George and Samuel Rutter without mules/horse to till the fields. Is this in your book too?

"GEORGE RUTTER, son of John and Elizabeth (Brillinger) Rutter, was born in
Manchester Township, June 16, 1827. His boyhood days were spent on the farm and
in attending the subscription schools. At the age of twenty-four years he began
farming his father’s farm, containing 167 acres, which he now owns. It is in a
high state of cultivation, and produces all the cereals in abundant crops. Mr.
Rutter devotes a great deals of attention to stock raising and fattening cattle
for the markets. During Gen. Early’s occupancy of York a squad of Confederates
took his horses during harvest time; he was thus compelled to hitch a pair of
green mules together with a horse to the reaper; they became unmanageable, and
ran away; the reaper passed over Mr. Rutter and crippled him for life. Mr.
Rutter was married in York, November 30, 1851, to Anna Mary, daughter of Charles
Diehl. There were born to them eight children, three of whom are deceased. The
living are George D., Jacob Charles, Edwin S., Albert C., Leah E., the only
daughter living is married to Philip Burg, of Hellam Township. Mr. Rutter and
his family are members of the Lutheran Church. His father died March 13, 1868,
aged seventy-two years four months and twenty-six days, and his mother died on
the same day of the same month, 1879, aged seventy-nine years and eleven months."
