This is one of the metal pieces that Ed Itnyre has found on his land on Park Hall Road, near Rohrersville. The property was owned at one time by Lockwood Rines, the operator of the Washington Marble Company who quarried marble on the Shifler land a mile away. This object may have been part of the pulley system to lift marble blocks out of the quarry.
