I am sure that they were but I bet their Smith and Wesson's went bang.....

From day one it's been COLT'S. I had an 1877 Colt's catalog that said Colt's. I bought it as a repro because the dealer didn't know the real name of the company.

Indeed. And the name on the letterhed of the archive letter is still "Colt's Manufacturing Company", although the historian is not consistent because the text of the letter then starts "Colt, by means of this letter, is proud to authenticate ... ", with no apostrophe-s.
