A bit more info would help us help you. On which side did he fight - British or American? Army or Navy (or don't know)? Any clue whether officer or other ranks (officers usually easier to sort out)?

I'm assuming he was British...
And do you have any idea of his unit? Was he still alive in 1847? Approximate date of birth/place of birth?

Sorryfor the lack of info. His name was Abel Barton Fuller living in Candor, Tioga, New York.  He was  American.  I have found one instance where he was paid :
#15,679
 Fuller. Abel B.
 Candor, Tompkins Co., NY
 55.00
 There are a lot of Abel B Fuller's out there but my ancestors birthdate is believed to be July 10, 1792 born in Oneida, New York.
I am looking for more information about his part in the War of 1812. 
There was an Abel Fuller with the 30th Infantry of VT.  I read that they did a NY campaign to recruit soldiers for the Battle of Plattsburgh.  Could be him but not sure how to prove this.  I guess I should request his pension papers..is the number above his pension #?
Thanks in advance.
