The architecture and brass trigger guard design indicate Ohio origin. The triggers appear to be early percussion period with the turned front trigger, and the thin angled rear trigger which indicates probably a single lever set trigger. Later designs were double lever. As far as the CC makers stamp, I dont know who that might be at this time.
