Merrills-need help

Classification: Query
Surnames: Merrill
I'm at a dead end here. I'm tracing back my line of Merrills. I'm at a dead end with James Merrill, who was born ca.1797 in Wales (?) and came to America. He was a loyalist and fled to Elgin, Ontario after the revolution. He lived there for sometime and his son John R. Merrill (my ancestor) was born there in ca. 1839. I think I found records that James served against the U.S. in the war of 1812, but I just can't find anything else. I'm trying to get as much info as I can about him to try and nail down his birthdate and origins. Any suggestions or information would really be helpful. I'm banging my head on the wall at this point.
