Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 13793

Question:

Dear Mr. Gabel I am looking for pennsylvania kentucky long rifles made by three gunsmiths from the Lancaster PA region, including Perry County. They were brothers Daniel, Samuel and William Crum, all born circa 1830s. Guns were made in the mid to late 1800's. Daniel is on record as a gunsmith and signed his (Dan Crum) . William Crum is not on record and did not. A third brother, Samuel was also a gunsmith but apparently was not as well known as Daniel. I am a neophyte at this but am not making any assumptions and realize this is a long shot. Thank you Chris Crum Brookline, MA

Answer:

The best way to locate a Kentucky Rifle by a particular gunsmith is to advertise. If you send your request for information to Kentucky Rifle Association, PO Box 97, Slatington, PA, 18080 along with your contact information I will try to have it listed in the organizations Wanted section of their bulletin. Include your mailing address and I will send you a copy of the newsletter.
