I have the 1850 cenus for Tuscaloosa,AL which lists James Fears age 62 (GA farmer), married to Judith Binion age 52, children: Richard, James (AL), Elizabeth, John, Margaret, Benjamin.
There is also Judith's fathers will, William Binion (Tuscaloosa, AL) married to Jane dated May 23-27 1842.
Tract Book Tuscaloosa, AL lists:

James Fears, Capt Kennedy's Co., GA., Militia War 1812 served Jan 26, 1815 to Mar 1 1815. In the state of AL, County of Tusc. on Dec 5, 1850, he declares he was a corporal in Co. of George Kennedy of the Augusta Independent Blues, War of 1812, was mustered into service of U.S. at Savannah 1815 for no definite period.
