Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question
Joseph Carper was my 4x grandfather and I am interested in purchasing one of his rifles. Any ideas where to find them other than happening across them at an antique gun show?
Joseph Carper Sr. (1802-1880)worked in West Virginia as a gunsmith, blacksmith and farmer. His guns are mounted in Chestnut wood and are usually full stocked. His son Joseph Carpenter Jr. (1853- ???) was a farmer and gunsmith from 1880 - 1901 in Shady Spring, Raleigh County. A gun dated 1882 is marked that it was his eleventh gun with the highest reported number being 54. You could request space for an ad in the Kentucky Rifle Association bulletin.
