CHAPTER X.
THE BOROUGH OF McVEYTOWN.
p. 600 The settlement of this place was begun by Samuel Holliday in 1755...

Samuel, Adam, John and William Holliday, and two sisters, Elizabeth and Nancy... emigrated to this country about 1745...

At the time of their settlement all the surrounding region of territory was in Cumberland County...

Samuel Holliday erected...

p. 601 ...a grist-mill... on the Juniata River, at the mouth of Mattawana Creek...

The township of Derry was erected in July, 1767, and embraced all of what is now Mifflin County.  The first assessment of the township was made in 1768, and at that time the only grist-mill and saw-mill assessed in the township (now Mifflin County) was the property of Samuel Holliday...

He married Sarah Campbell, who survived him.  They had seven children John, James, Adam, Michael, Samuel, Rebecca and Jane...

The mills were sold to Samuel HOLLIDAY, a son... June 1, 1813... The grist-mill was abandoned... and a new one was erected by Samuel Holliday...  In 1867 it was owned by C. & C.P. Dull... until its destruction by fire, June 1, 1870.
