We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Indexes to the Carded Records of Soldiers Who Served in Volunteer Organizations During the Civil War in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that include include a file for New York - Wiley, Hebron - 13th Infantry. This record has been digitized and is available using the Catalog.

Not all of these records have been digitized.
