Hi Cheryl,

Have you checked Pension and Bounty Land records from the NARA?  I've 
had very good luck with information on War of 1812 Veterans in both 
of these record sets.  I even found on man who received Bounty Land, 
which led me to his Pension file that had been disallowed because 
he'd not served enough days.  On another his widow applied for a got 
Bounty Land after the man's death.

Good luck!
