In addition to their pension files, many soldiers in the War of 1812 also had bounty land files. Even if they didn’t actually relocate to their bounty land, there would still be paperwork associated with it.
These warrants, along with all other federal land transactions, are indexed at: https://glorecords.blm.gov/search/
If you find your ancestor in that database, either send the URL or the information on the entry, to ensure that we are searching for the correct soldier.
