This may be the publication that names one of my ancestors. Do you see a listing for a Devarney or DeVarney from Vermont or elsewhere?

 

Thanks.

WS60 Looks like a great reference. Do you mind looking to see if you see a name similar to this one? I can not make it out but look like "Mion".

Thanks is advance. The rifle is about 32 caliber and has a false muzzle.

 

Would appreciate any comment suggestions. Will try to get better pics of engraving if it helps.

Very difficult to read last name, but for me capitol letter look like "G M". There is the list of names with both letters.

 

G.Morse

George Massa

George Mayer

G. Miller

George Miner

George Moor

 

Dots on metal doesn't look for me as ends of letter " i ". If you can check sign with infrared light, I think, it's be helpful.

If you wish to know more about any of these names, just ask for more info.

Some dots appear to be a decoration. I have never used IR on metal but will ask a documents examiner. I have restored die stamped impressions (serial numbers) on guns but it is rough on the finish and will leave a raised image which wears off quickly and ruins any collector value.

 

Are any of the names from Old Salem in NC? G Minor appears to be the closest. I have a few books but could not find anything. I also was not sure what the first letter was so knowing it is a "G" will be a big help. I was not sure what it was.

 

The other gun the gentleman gave me was a German winder musket. Not US but old enough to be used in the Revolutionary War. Will get some pics of it if anyone interested and mods think it is not too much off topic.
