Anyone know anything about this builder? The seller says " Leroy Fleemon". Looks more like "Leroy Fleenor" to me. It's on a neatly done Hawken style rifle.

Hes from the Johnson City Tennessee area (deceased). He was a contemporary of Louis Smith, Lester Smith, Dale Johnson, and Don Davidson. Of that group only Dale Johnson is still with us.
LeRoy (Buck) did nice work and his pieces are very desired among contemporary collectors!

For sure and I make either a lock or triggers for him.
