It wasn't common practice to record births back in 1807. Your best bet would be church christening or baptism record. As for middle initials sometimes they were used and sometimes not, just as we do today. Don't get hung up on the initial.
I really think the death record is the best way to go.
I found this family group sheet at Remember this was put on by an individual so can't be entirely relied on to be correct.
