I googled it and got no where. There were a lot of little manufacturers in the 1800's and thing were much different than today. I wonder if a call to the NRA Museum could get you in touch with an expert that might help.

All I could find:

An auction Solomon, dates c. 1846, the gun went for $354.00. Photos.

https://auctions.morphyauctions.com/...entoryid=62694

Item 36 on this auction list, "Percussion Half Stock 12ga. Shotgun Fowler w/36 U.S. Mod. 1863 Barrel". List of 50 guns, would have been an interesting auction for sure.....
