I have a Civil War book with the name Lewis De Young of Rochester, New York written inside (I think that is his name -see pic). Can anyone tell me if he served in the Civil War?

Yes, Lewis M DeYoung, or Louis DeYoung, served in Co K or L 2nd NY Cavalry in the war. He served as Lewis Young, of Rochester. Mustered in Sept 10, 1864, out July 1, 1865. Definitely him, as I find a later reference to him with the same 84 George St. Rochester address as on the book inscription. He came from a large Jewish family in Monroe County and was a horse trader and hack driver in postwar life. All info from Ancestry.

 

The 2nd Cav unit roster has Lewis being captured at Cedar Creek 11/12/64, paroled at N.E. Ferry 3/3/65. Hope this helps.
