I can't name it exactly, but it looks like maybe a wrist bone ?

Looks like a tapir medial phalanx. Is there much Pleistocene material found there?

Not a huge amount, but yes it is not uncommon

I agree...Tapir or horse medial phalanx (I'm sorry, I don't know what scale your ruler is in.  My head still works best in English inches measure, lol)

Green Mill Run also has Cretaceous, no? Maybe this is a hadrosaur phalanx?

Sorry about the weird scale. I thought it was mm however it is pics (1/6 of an inch per increment). Here are new photos with inch ref. I wonder if it is deer?

Ooops!  I posted the wrong image.  Here are the proximal and medial phalanges:
