Need assistance with a Revolutionary War service sticker/template

Micajah McGehee is on the list of Data suggestions in Georgia, United States.  Currently, he has a War of 1812 template.  This is incorrect as he died before that time (sources in his bio).  However, it does appear he may have been a Revolutionary War soldier.  There is a land bounty/pension document on Fold 3.  I cannot view it.  The Family Search link is here: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NS37-G3N

If it can be verified he is a patriot, please remove the 1812 sticker and substitute the correct Revolutionary War sticker.  Thanks!

I found a few sources for Micajah's Revolutionary War service and added a sticker for you.

The fold 3 document is a letter written in 1929 asking for a search of pension records for Samuel McGehee, a Micajah McGehee is mentioned in the letter as a son of Samuel.

I could find no other relevant records for a Micajah McGehee (or variants). I went ahead and removed the 1812 sticker.

Thanks so much.  It mentioned on findagrave that he was a Rev. War vet but I couldn't find anything but that doc on Fold 3.  Thanks again!
You're very welcome!
