Help in identifying a rifle

Bought this from a friend who needed some quick cash. This is a percussion cap rifle with brass inlay in the stock and the initials S.C.C. in the left side of the stock. The receiver plate below the action says " J & H Meachum & Co., Warranted". It is an octogon barrel and is actually in good shape. Trying to figure out what this is and its value (seeing if it was worth the cash or if I just helped out a friend) When I try to search for Meachum, the only thing that comes up is E. C. Meachum from St. Louis

Thanks in advance for any help! For anyone who already saw this in the C & R forum, I moved it to here as suggested.
