Have you looked for a pension for either he or his widow? Also, have you looked for his Graves Registration card? Sometimes they would list the regiment of the veteran (though with an 1812 vet, it's more likely to just say "War of 1812").  In Ohio, the Graves Registration cards are usually found in the County Recorder's Office in the county where the veteran is buried. There's also a statewide GR file that's available on microfilm at the Ohio Historical Society and a few other libraries; it's also available through your local FHC.

> Where would the best place be to find information of a War of 1812 veteran? I have an ancestor that served in the War of 1812, according to a marker on his grave. He is buried in Ohio (d. 1847) and purchased land here in 1817. I have found two Service Records for a man of his name on Ancestry, which may or may not be the same man. One served with the 37 Regiment (Noble’s), New York Militia and the other was the 2 Regiment (Fifield’s) Vermont Militia. He came from Essex County, NY, so either one of those could possibly fit him. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
