Inherited cap and ball

I just received an old cap and ball muzzleloader from my grandfather and I was wondering if anyone could give me any information about it. The only thing stamped on it is G.T. Abbey Chicago Ill. I have done some research I from what I have found those were being made between 1850's and 1870's. Does anyone know any more?
