Shadrick Worrell 1796-1885 VA, IA, IN

I am seeking information on Shadrick Worrell. I know the following about him:

He was born in Virginia (possibly Grayson County) in 1796. The probable period of his birth, based on various documentation I have, is April 01 - June 16, 1796.

His parents were probably Amos Worrell, Sr. and Nancy Ellen (Nellie) Roberts (based on the numerous GEDCOMS that are out there) but I have no documentation to support this.

He served in the War of 1812 in Captain Michael Shively’s company of the 57th Regiment of Virginia Militia from December 11, 1814 to February 22, 1815. This information is from his pension records.

He appears on the 1817 Grayson County Tax Rolls.

During the period of 1818 to 1821, he left Virginia and settled in Indiana. While there, he married Mary Montgomery and Melinda Holtzclaw. He moved to Story County, Iowa for a few years and then moved back to Hendricks County, Indiana, where he died in 1885.

I am looking for his date and location of birth and information on the 57th Regiment of Virginia Militia. I have found information about Grayson County in the War of 1812 but no mention of the 57th Regiment or a Captain Shively. Could this regiment be from another county?

I have also heard there is a Worrell Family Cemetery in Grayson County or Carroll County. Any information about this place would be greatly appreciated.
