J F Vantrees rifle found in Michigan

Here are some pics. It's just as found, all I've done for now is tie a piece of leather strap around the muzzle to hold the barrle onto the stock as the retaining pis are missing. The barrel looks unfinished underneath and hand forged. The unique thing is the "J F Vantrees" marking is on the bottom of the stock? Could this be an early one of his maybe?
