For more military service information on this person, you may order, from the NARA, a copy of his military records and pension..visit the online site for the NARA for information on how to do this.
As this is a site for American Revolutionary War data, and you seem to be looking more for what happened to him AFTER the war, you might want to try posting your questions to the county that Detroit Michigan is in. Check the following site for how to access data that has been submitted by others, for the county where he lived.
Join the rootsweb genealogical list for those researching the area, and if there is a surname site, join it, too. Check the archives of these lists, to see what has been posted in the past....and pose your questions there, to people interested in either the area or the name.
http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/index.html this site will allow you to see all the gen. lists available.
You will do better if you ask for specific things...who was his wife? who were his children? where he was buried? Most times, if people post just "tell me about this person", their posts are ignored...do be specific.
It is also helpful to know HOW you know the things you list as factual...how do you know he died in Detroit? had a sawmill?
The first federal census was in 1790, but Michigan didn't become a state till, I think around 1840, so you might want to look for a census for 1840 and 1850, in case he was still alive and living there.
It's better to include the information you have, in your query and not expect strangers to go to some other site to read your data...most will simply delete and I, personally, don't visit sites I know nothing about or whether they are safe or not...so, include what you feel it is important for people to know in your query.
