I really appreciate you taking the time to explain all that to me ... I had never been able to find additional information about the battalion elsewhere except in the civil war records where the same battalion did serve. The 1812-1814 records were just lists of draftees, with no information on whether they saw action or not.
As there is a family reunion this summer and with the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, with descendents living on both sides of the border, we felt it was important to try and find out more about James McKee's service. Your detailed explanation is truly appreciated.
