Richard,

Are you joining my Spencer Shooting Society?  If you are I will need your Email address, just shoot me an Email at fsgrand2@fairpoint.net that you want to join. ;D

Regarding your Spencer Carbine serial # 26752.  I found two Spencer serial #s close to yours.

26760 -  a Spencer Carbine issued to Company B, 4th Kentucky Mounted Infantry on March 13, 1865

and

26762 - a Spencer Carbine issued to Company L, 2nd New York Volunteer Cavalry in March of 1865

Hope this helps.
