Who is Nechensky Alexandr Nikolayevich?

In the small town Bezjanitsy (Бежаницы), oblast Pskov, stands a statue for General-Major Nechensky Alexandr Nikolayevich (Неченскй Александрь Николаевичь). First I thought this was Ivan Nikolayevich Essen (Magnus Gustav Essen but the dates of birth and death does not fit. So, who knows who the man on the statue was. A translation of the text on the statue is:
----------
Nechensky
Alexandra Nikolayevich
1780-1834

General Major
The hero of the war of 1806-1814.
Famous Partisan
The Flood of 1812
The legendary commander
1st Bug Regiment (?)
----------
I am curous, because I myself cannot find anything

Kind regards,
