Here's what Vaughn E. Whisker wrote about Isaac King in an article titled "Co. Had 30 Gunmakers-Gunsmiths" in the November 1971 issue of the Somerset County "Laurel Messenger".
The referenced 1818 advertisement appears to be the sole reason Isaac King is listed in gun collectors books as a Somerset County gunsmith. A reference to the advertisement is included in the March 3, 1797 issue of the "Somerset Herald". Excerpts follow.
