"Kentucky" is used as a common description of a "style" of firearm, rather than an indicator of where it was made (usually long-barreled, with full tiger-striped wood, etc.). If you can get some pictures (especially close-ups of the lock) it might be possible to tell if your pistol was originally built as a percussion pistol, or if it was converted from a flintlock pistol (which was common after the more-reliable percussion system began to spread).
