Seeking Confirmation of a burial

Graceland Cemetery lists Corpl John Morris served under Capt John F Fleming in the Ohio Militia during the War of 1812. b. Jan 29, 1790 Rockbridge, Va d. Jan 1881 in Sidney, Shelby Co, Ohio. burial Graceland Cemetery.

The reason:

My gggg grandfather John Morris on his grave reg card lists his service in the Ohio Milita during the war of 1812
under Capt John F Flemming.

I checked the Ohio War of 1812 Roster only one Corpl John Morris was listed serving under Capt John F Flemming at that time.

The Grave Reg Card I obtained was for my gggg grandfather John Morris b. 1796 Va and d. Apr 9, 1863 Chardon, Geauga Co, Ohio burial took place in Maple Hill Cemetery.

I have one gggg grandfather John Morris listed in two places any information that might solve this mystery greatly appreciated thank you Robert Morris.
