Sorry for the delay in answering your info. Thank you for the further info. Here is more inf on the Quattlebaum Rifle we have found. Hope you enjoy it & it helps.Sorry for the delay in responding.
Found this inf in the Quattlebaum Family History Book by "M.M. Quattlebaum & Amos Sales" What are thought to have been the first percussion-cap locks in South Carolina are introduced by General Quattlebaum & mounted by him on gun barrels of his own make, thus making obsolete the older flint& steel locks. The gun shop operated under lease during the Confederate War & the output went to the Army. (Two of these rifles are now in possession of his decendants. One is owned by Paul Quattlebaum III, a great-grand-son, & one by Furman E Brodie, a grand-son. The first percussion-cap lock was given him by the Chief of the Armory in Washington D.C., to whom he was introduced by President Jackson after a dinner at the White House).
Someone since has come back & advise us that there is a Quattlebaum rifle at the Confederate Museum in South Carolina. I'am still trying to find info on it thru them with no luck. When I get more info I will let you know. Tana
