I did a lot of work trying to figure this out and got now where. I was

detail NY in the War of 1812, so any large research library should do.
There are also lots of web pages available - try searching www.google.com
(or your own favorite) with "war 1812 york"
I found the 2nd and 129th regiments being from Central New York and have
web pages for what I was able to find:
