      Larry,
      As you probably know, the stream flows down into the Potomac along the Taylor's
      Landing road, or whatever that road is that leads from the Mondell intersection
      down to the canal.  I believe the mill was along this run, probably down by the
      canal.  Alternatively, there is a structure farther up the slope which looks
      like it might have been a mill.  Will try to look at it in the next couple days.

      Does anyone know off the top of his head the location of the Dovenberger Mill at
      Mercersville? Tischler mentions in his Harpers Ferry book (pp. 146, 184) that
      the mill may have been the one the column passed and where it skirmished with
      some Rebels.

      The Taggart Map only shows one Dovenberger near Mercersville but a few
      "Dovenbargers." The waterpowered mill must have been near a stream unless it got
      water from the Potomac but there is no stream shown on the map on Dovenberger's
      land.

      Larry
