Dear Ms. Gonzalez,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Volunteer Organizations During the War of 1812 in the Records of the Adjutant General’s Office (Record Group 94). In order to protect these historically valuable records, the original paper copies can not be served to researchers. To order copies of these records, please fill out a NATF Form 86 and mail it to Archival Operations Washington D.C., Form 86 – Military, National Archives and Records Administration, 700 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20408-0001. You may place your order online using eservices.archives.gov. For more information, please see Requesting Copies of Older (pre-WWI) Military Service Records or email National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also located Muster Rolls of Volunteer Organizations During the War of 1812 in Record Group 94 which may include records of the 1st Regiment Georgia Militia. The Catalog description indicates that these records may be served in the research rooms. We recommend contacting RDT1 for more information prior to your visit, as well as reviewing the web page for our DC location.
The Prologue article Genealogical Records of the War of 1812 provides additional information about researching individual soldiers.
Finally, because he was with a Georgia militia unit, there may be records concerning his service at the Georgia Archives.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
