The 2001 book "Gunsmiths of Bedford, Fulton, Huntington, & Somerset Counties" by Whisker and Yantz indicates that Josiah Moss of Bedford County was apprenticed to George Rizer by Bedford County Widow Experience Moss in 1813. George Rizer was a gunsmith in Allegany County, Maryland.
I live near the Maryland Archives, and should be able to find and photograph the original court record once the Covid-19 problem is over and the archives reopen.
