James Stapleton was a gunsmith in Todd Township, Huntingdon County in the mid and late 1800s. I grew up in Huntingdon Co. near Marklesburg, have many family members in the area, and I may very well be a descendent of Mr. Stapleton (my grandfather was a Stapleton). I have the Track of the Wolf book discussing gunmakers of Bedford, Fulton and Huntingdon Counties that has picutres of Mr. Stapleton's home, shop and several of his guns. I would really appreciate the opportunity to see his guns in person and hope that a historical society or other public collection might have one - has anyone seen any of his guns in western or central PA? A true dream would certainly be to own one some day, but I would even settle for a few photographs and possibly have someone build me a replica made in his style someday. I know its a longshot, but please let me know if you have run across any of his guns, or if you know anything about him.
