Default What kind of firearms is this?

I'm looking to identify this firearm. Any help would be great.
It has an octagonal barrel, it has a name on it that appears to be Jon Golgher or Colgher.

Default Its a Golcher...

Welcome Aaron!

At least in part I believe as an educated guess it is a Golcher based gun. The Golcher family made some parts and assembled a few rifles in the 19th C. Joseph (Jos.) Golcher was a primarily lock-maker in the Philadelphia, PA area c. 1825 to 1860. His locks are ubiquitous and were used by gunmakers across the country but especially "back East."

Keep an eye on my "One Gun A Week" thread.
