No history at all on either of those numbers. Several nearby numbers (but none within about 50 in one direction or 150 in the other direction) were in use by different units during the Spanish American War, and likely yours was too, but no telling by whom. Rifles were not issued in exact sequence, and most records were destroyed or lost long ago.
