family members in Napoleonic wars

I recently was told that a family member fought with Napoleon in the war of 1812 in Moscow. Unfortunately, I have no 1st name, just "Private Peyronel." I was also told by my father that there was a surgeon from our family who attended Napoleon. I assumed that the name of that person was "Clot" (my family name) but possibly this was also a Peyronel. Does anyone have any information about this? The Peyronel's that I am related to are from the Germanesca Valley area in the Piedmont of Italy. My grandmother, Henriette Peyronel, (born 1851) was from Riclaretto, Perrero in that valley. It appears that all her family dating to the late 1600's were also from the same area.
