      I was at Antietam last Friday to give a full tour for a friend. While at the park, I spoke with my good friend John Hoptak. He talked to Keven Walker (the park's expert at historic buildings, etc.) about the Stone Mill.

      Kevin searched the census records and concluded "beyond a reasonable doubt" that at least in 1860 the home was occupied by Mr. Solomon and Ms. Jennie Lum. Their two daughters (Fannie, 3, and Annie, 1,) lived there as well, along with a "servant" named Louisa Marshall.

      No Bill, it was not a Rohrbach farm. I researched this once, out of curiosity mostly, but do not remember what I found. Will look again when I have time.

      I was under the impression that it was owned by a Rohrbach.

      In a letter from a soldier of the Seventeenth Michigan Infantry, he only refres to it as a stone mill. His unit charged a group of Confederates near the mill late in the afternoon.
