Hunting for Emma Epler Knudson

I am trying to find out information about Emma Epler Knudson and her descendants. A William Epler bought a Revolutionary War musket once belonging to my GG grandfather, Matthias Hester. He bought the rifle in 1883, according to the Epler family history, of which I have part. The musket was brought by Lafayette as one of his Charleville weapons, and it accompanied my relative from Pa to KY and thence to IN, where the family sold it about 60 years after his death. The musket then made its way to Emma Epler Knudson. I am most interested in trying to find out who has the weapon now and at least getting a photo of it. Any help would be much appreciated.
