Peter Faunce war of 1812

Does anyone have any information on one Peter Faunce from Northern Liberties outside of old Philadelphia? He was captured by the British after the battle of Fort George in the war of 1812. He was never heard from since. He was "a fife player and musician". Our Family has an old affidavit, sworn by one "George Fox" a fellow soldier in the "14th Pennsylvania Brigade". I presume his family needed this affidavit for a pension or to re-marry? (!). Our family may be his direct descendants (or from his brother William Henry Faunce?) Any information would be appreciated.
