^^^ As did I.  But it also seemed like a genuine attempt to be helpful from someone who seems to be familiar with the topic so I hope he sticks around.

Sir:  I have one just like your grandma's rifle.  The words read PS&J Co, Warranteed.  Probably made around 1837 and about a 38 caliber or shot.  My barrel is octagonal and i also have a reed ramrod below.  Hope this helps.  glenn

Henry percussion = Hawken pattern rifle.

Tallen, I'm going to agree, the more I root through my books, the more I'm seeing "Hawkins"

Looks to be a Hawken pattern rifle.

Quote     * Heavy octagonal barrel
    * Bore size of .50 caliber or more, designed for hunting larger game such as American bison, grizzly bear and elk
    * Hooked breech, allowing the barrel to be easily removed from the stock for cleaning
    * Iron furniture (including nosecap)
    * Front blade sight


Does that sound right? If so, good luck finding the worth. Almost every country in the western world licensed that pattern from Sam Hawken.


Edit. It's a double set trigger, it's DEFINITELY a Hawken, just not sure what type. They made a bunch of them in 35.5" (meaning Hawken and others) It appears to be a rather "common" example of a Hawken Plain Rifle.


Hotlinked:


I'm saying Hawken half-stock with a 35.5" barrel.

I hate to be a pain in the jimmies, but can you get a close up shot of the patch box on the stock and the trigger guard/lockplate?

The set trigger is common with range rifles, though I've seen them on some Hawkins rifles as well.
