Deyoes in the Civil War

Thanks to Ancestry.com I found my husband's great grandfather's brother in the Civil War! According to: New York State Archives, Albany, New York; Town Clerks´ Registers of Men Who Served in the Civil War, ca 1861-1865; Collection Number: (N-Ar)13774; Box Number: 64; Roll Number: 35 ...
James Deyoe was the son of John Deyoe and Mary Schermerhorn (putting him brother to our Daniel). James was born on 8 July 1822 in Lexington, Greene County. He enlisted on 8 August 1862 in Shandaken, Ulster, NY. He was a Provate in the 120th Infantry with Company B. I also confirmed he was married at the time. I found several other Deyoes - most from Saratoga - but no mention of a Daniel yet.
