these pics may be easier to view in my photo album, plus there are some comments about some markings on the rifle.

It looks like an Eastern (possibly New England) target rifle of about 1850-1860. The Marble's tang sight is old, but a century or so newer than the gun. Such guns were made by hundreds of small gunsmith shops across the country; most purchased barrels, stocks and other parts from gunsmith supply houses and fitted and assembled guns to order. Unless there are markings on the lockplate, or somewhere else on the gun, I doubt anyone can tell you where it was made or by whom.
