James Campbell, North Carolina Militia, Capt. Deaver's (?) Company

I recently found a copy of a certificate, on the BLM website, regarding my James CAMPBELL serving in the North Carolina Militia in Capt. Deaver's Company (spelling of his name as found on the certificate). No first name was given.

My CAMPBELL family moved: N.C. > Tennessee > Missouri > Kansas. The land record had the following information:
"There has been deposited in the GENERAL LAND OFFICE, Warrant No. 39,451 for 160 acres, in favor of Ruth Campbell, widow of James Campbell, Private, Captain Deaver's Company North Carolina Militia War 1812 . . ."

Date of land record was 9 September 1860, and the land was in Nemaha County, Kansas. I believe James died in Pulaski County, Missouri about 1836.

My James CAMPBELL, was born in North Carolina (county unknown) about 1796. James and Ruth (ANDERSON) CAMPBELL were married in Missouri about Dec. 1819. His father's name was also James CAMPBELL. Middle name/initial isn't known for father or son.

I'm hopeful there was a Captain Deaver in the North Carolina Militia (or other North Carolina branch) and you can identify the company and or regiment so I can write for possible military and pension information.
