Do you know whether or not this Benjamin Darby served in the Civil War?
The Civil War Soldiers & Sailors System has five listings on the Confederate side for Benjamin Darbys. They are:
Benjamin Darby, PVT, 39th Virginia Infantry, Co. A
Benjamin C. Darby, PVT, 1st Alabama Infantry, Co. E
Benjamin F. Darby, PVT, 1st Bn, Alabama Artillery, Co. E
Benjamin F. Darby, PVT, 57th Alabama Infantry, Co. A (Probably same person as above)
Benjamin W. Darby, PVT (Buglar), 5th Bn, Florida Cavalry
If he served, the Alabama guys seem the most likely candidates.
There is also one listing on the Union side:
Benjamin Darby, PVT, 41st Ohio
It is also possible that the weapon was used in the war and carried by someone else, perhaps a relative.
