Sorry, no information has survived concerning M1868 #10460.
Data does exist for a few scattered numbers within a few hundred of this one, but they differ greatly, and any attempt to speculate about his one being with one of the others is purely speculation. It may have been exciting places doing important stuff, or hidden in a national guard/militia armory is Paducah until it was stolen by a drunken private one day. Make up any story you like, it is as valid as any other theory absent real documentation.
